THE WONDERLAND CLUB
Currently, homosexual relationships between grown men and young boys are illegal in the United States. Nevertheless, Jerry Sandusky is but one member of a covert, convoluted, nationwide “brotherhood” of respected mentors, ministers, teachers, coaches, cops, judges, priests, and politicians, etc., with a penchant for pederasty and pedophilia. Subsequent to the Obama Administration’s legalization of homosexuality in the military, gay and lesbian marriage, and bestiality, etc., is it possible, plausible, probable, or preposterous to think that a coterie of powerful and prominent men, i.e., NAMBLA, is focused next upon the legalization of the very same kinds of liaisons that landed Coach Sandusky behind bars? Explain. One of the points well-illustrated in Aaron Fisher’s book, “Silent No More”, is that adults often fail to report allegations of child sexual abuse to the proper authorities. This deliberate betrayal of America’s abused minors can lead to their dropping out of school, alcohol and drug abuse, promiscuity, and even suicide. Therefore, the availability of age appropriate materials and discussions about pedophilia is a sine qua non for temples, churches, synagogues, schools, youth centers, and juvenile correctional facilities to better facilitate children reaching adulthood unscathed. Paradoxically, the Wonderland Club is but one example of how pederasts and pedophiles on either side of the Atlantic often are protected by their “brothers” in child protection, the clergy, the courts, sports, scouting, and law enforcement. Ergo, WE can’t fix it IF we can’t face it!
In Deuteronomy, Leviticus, and II Kings, God’s Old Testament punishment for sacrificing children to Molech was to be stoned to death. Yet, more than 3,000 years later, is it possible, plausible, probable, or preposterous to think this apostate, pagan ritual continues sub rosa in dungeons, juvenile facilities, basements, occult lodges, groves, and Satanic temples here in the US and elsewhere? Any nation that vacates GOD’s commandments, by default, will become more ungodly and more evil. Therefore, in a Judeo-Christian nation wherein “In God We Trust” has become a mere creed on the money upon which it is printed, who eventually becomes the next President is inconsequential to innocent children passing through the fire. Why? “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in HIGH places.” WE can’t fix it IF we can’t face it!
“And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, I am the Lord your God. After the doings of the land of Egypt, wherein ye dwelt, shall ye not do: and after the doings of the land of Canaan, whither I bring you, shall ye not do: neither shall ye walk in their ordinances. Ye shall do my judgments, and keep mine ordinances, to walk therein: I am the Lord your God. Ye shall therefore keep my statutes, and my judgments: which if a man do, he shall live in them: I am the Lord. None of you shall approach to any that is near of kin to him, to uncover their nakedness: I am the Lord. The nakedness of thy father, or the nakedness of thy mother, shalt thou not uncover: she is thy mother; thou shalt not uncover her nakedness. The nakedness of thy father’s wife shalt thou not uncover: it is thy father’s nakedness. The nakedness of thy sister, the daughter of thy father, or daughter of thy mother, whether she be born at home, or born abroad, even their nakedness thou shalt not uncover. The nakedness of thy son’s daughter, or of thy daughter’s daughter, even their nakedness thou shalt not uncover: for theirs is thine own nakedness. The nakedness of thy father’s wife’s daughter, begotten of thy father, she is thy sister, thou shalt not uncover her nakedness. Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy father’s sister: she is thy father’s near kinswoman. Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy mother’s sister: for she is thy mother’s near kinswoman. Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy father’s brother, thou shalt not approach to his wife: she is thine aunt. Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy daughter in law: she is thy son’s wife; thou shalt not uncover her nakedness. Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy brother’s wife: it is thy brother’s nakedness. Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of a woman and her daughter, neither shalt thou take her son’s daughter, or her daughter’s daughter, to uncover her nakedness; for they are her near kinswomen: it is wickedness. Neither shalt thou take a wife to her sister, to vex her, to uncover her nakedness, beside the other in her life time.
Also thou shalt not approach unto a woman to uncover her nakedness, as long as she is put apart for her uncleanness. Moreover thou shalt not lie carnally with thy neighbour’s wife, to defile thyself with her. And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the Lord. Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion. Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you: And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants. Ye shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations; neither any of your own nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you.”
[Leviticus 18: 1 – 26]
Why Can’t Johnny Read?
Teenagers and young boys of any race yearn for the nurture and the approbation of their biological fathers, their grandfathers, their peers, and other respected elders within their communities. Ergo, when our Village Elders passionately celebrate how well a male athlete handles a football or a basketball, at the expense of handling his brains and his books, are we not culpable for Johnny not knowing how to read or otherwise to excel in the classroom? Once upon a time, the Dark Continent’s Library at Alexandria was the world’s preeminent center for research and scholarly learning! Is it not also true that the al-Qarawiyyin Library [in Fez, Morocco] is the oldest library in the world? Antithetically, two centuries ago, it still was against the law in the United States for African slaves to learn how to read or to write. Paradoxically, many African American males today consider such quintessential erudition to be tantamount to “acting white”. Brothers, IF a mind is a terrible thing to waste, then what happened? In India, for example, their “Talented Tenth” uses Yale, Harvard, and MIT, etc., as second tier back up schools IF they fail to gain admission to IIT. I would be remiss were I not to acknowledge that the majority of black males I meet, who are in graduate school, also are from Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica, Haiti, Nigeria, et al. Ergo, what can African-Americans learn about the value of eloquence and education from our kin who immigrate from throughout the Diaspora? Via a spate of homicides similar to that of Ronald Johnson, the criminal justice system in Chicago [or any major city in the United States] obviates the reality of racism blocking our efforts to draw water from the well of success. Yet, why do we relentlessly respond emotionally rather than intellectually via punching holes in the bottoms of our own buckets? For example, why haven’t Village Elders already replicated Urban Prep Academy’s pedagogy throughout Chicago and the rest of our nation? How would it impact Chicago and the rest of our nation IF Village Elders created book clubs and mandated that black boys master chess, critical thinking, chemistry, computer technology, personal finance, mathematics, a foreign language and obeying the Scriptures by age twelve? Obeying the Bible, Koran, Tripitaka, or Torah must never be supplanted by Satan’s hedonistic vices, i.e., gun violence, drugs, alcoholism, teen pregnancy, and AIDS, etc., which are deleterious to any identity group’s individual and collective success. IF Jews are fastidious about the proper education for their progeny, then what can Gentiles learn from the “Chosen People” regarding what’s important during our formative years?
While driving his family to his son’s graduation from medical school, IF a motorist has a flat tire on I-95, yet, remains in his SUV while listening to his favorite music, then is he serious about continuing his journey? Assuming no AAA membership with a spare in the trunk, is it a nail’s fault or the father’s fault that his son now is livid that his family was not there to share and to celebrate his special day? In this Age of Fatherlessness, IF the African American community fails to replicate Urban Prep Academy’s quintessential pedagogy for boys, then is it the prison industrial complex’s fault or our own Village Elder’s fault that Junior can handle a ball far better than he can handle a textbook? Antithetical to the expectations of black families from Ghana, Egypt, Ethiopia, Nigeria, Jamaica, Haiti, Trinidad and Tobago, et al., why do countless African American fathers embrace the pipe dream of NFL and NBA fortune and fame for their sons during their formative years? Moreover, why haven’t our NBA and NFL stars invested a tenth of their wealth or even a paltry $1,000,000 each to replicate Urban Prep Academy campuses from Connecticut to California? Is it possible, plausible, probable, or preposterous to think that 79% – 97% of black males in US medical schools have close ties to Africa or the Caribbean, while 79% – 97% of the men in many prisons are African American? What’s wrong with this picture of “I’m black and I’m proud,”? What will 295 organizations mentoring at risk youths on Martin Luther King Day do to improve SAT scores? In my father’s words, “Not a cotton picking thing!” Yet, IF Village Elders perpetually mandated that black boys master chess, chemistry, computer technology, a foreign language, the Scriptures, and critical thinking before age twelve, then might the privatized prison industry go out of business or be forced to find a new identity group as its “cash crop”? In the Biblical context of “my brother’s keeper”, to what extent do African American men hold one another accountable for keeping away from Lucifer’s relentless game of “Trick or Treat”, i.e., gun violence, smoking, drinking, gambling, adultery, incest, fornication, HIV, etc.? Currently, more than two million African American men in our communities read at or below tenth grade level, despite many of them being skilled craftsmen or manual laborers. Is there any correlation, brothers, between criminal activity and illiteracy? Is there any correlation between illiteracy and immorality? Explain. Ergo, it is imperative that WE atone for the desuetude of Black Intellectualism via challenging HBCU graduates and Ivy League graduates alike to form nurturing Platonic bonds with “boyz in da hood’ who never completed high school. To be a “real man”, we must seek better ways to connect and to communicate — physically, intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually — with our kindred. WE can’t fix it IF we can’t face it, inconsequential to whatever “it” is!
Virtually everything we do has a spiritual motive, a sexual motive, or both. As spiritual beings, gentlemen, what we pontificate and practice are but reflections of the good or evil spirits dwelling within our hearts. Of course, we can’t teach our progeny to value what we don’t value. Therefore, IF millions of our Village Elders are both functionally illiterate and inept, then are we too insecure and too ineducable to return to the classroom to matriculate in our 40’s, 50’s, and 60’s, etc.? Despite an academic scholarship upon graduation from high school, I dropped in and out of college several times prior to finally graduating in my fifties…capish? “So, what is we gonna do?” IF more than two million of us never completed high school, then when will HBCU and Ivy League graduates alike replicate the Each One Teach One mentoring model for uneducated black men? Does your church, lodge, temple, or mosque have a GED Program? If not, why not? Would GOD be well-pleased if every male with a college degree formed a nurturing bond with a brother who never completed high school and tutored him, mano a mano, until he earned a GED and his bachelor’s degree? Am I my brother’s keeper or am I gainfully employed and plugged into the matrix a/k/a the prison industrial complex? Of course, unlike “Finding Forrester”, a self-loathing Negro might curse you and cut you for broaching this subject of literacy! Ergo, cast not thy pearl unto swine. Nevertheless, Victory In Christ Ensemble [VICE] believes there are countless “at risk” grown men who would accept such an offer and LOVE you for the rest of their lives! How can Bible carrying bishops, apostles, preachers, lay-leaders, evangelists, elders, deacons, stewards, trustees, and national overseers, etc., love GOD IF they fail to minister unto the downtrodden? What would Jesus do….I rest my case. By joining VICE, you can learn how to implement such altruism, atonement, and sacrifice for the benefit of the Human Race. IF more than two million of us are convicted felons, then when will our Village Elders replicate Victory In Christ Ensemble’s [VICE] Not Guilty Program or a comparable business model to empower “the least of these”? When the Bible declares, “The people perish for a lack of knowledge,” might it be referring to us? Gentlemen, is it possible, plausible, probable, or preposterous to think that many successful African American women are not even interested in what we bring to the table unless we are physically, financially, emotionally, spiritually, and intellectually on their level? Like it or not, they have raised the bar of expectation regarding what we are packing between our ears rather than between our legs! Gentlemen, spending ten hours together each week in the library studying rather than in the living room watching sports could manumit at least two million of us from illiteracy, thus indirectly ameliorating SAT scores for our progeny. So, principals, professors, college presidents, politicians, police officers, probation officers, and PE coaches, “What is we gonna do?” My beloved brothers, IF such a comportment reminiscent of the Harlem Renaissance is tantamount to “acting white”, then should our Village Elders teach African American boys and girls how to act so white that even myriad White people may become jealous of their “whiteness”? Explain. Lastly, IF life is tantamount to a game of chess, then how can a Black man ever expect to win if he only knows how to play checkers? I rest my case. WE can’t fix it IF we can’t face it…and we are running out of time! Checkmate!
Baphomet vs the Body of Christ
Is it a fact that Americans hate beheading? When did we decide that we “love” the collateral casualties of drone warfare? Kudos for this caveat of critical thinking regarding the ubiquity of American moral and religious hypocrisy. Objective perusal of our political stand on virtually any ethical issue, i.e., the Trail of Tears, Colonialism, the Crusades, slavery, Apartheid, child pornography, global warming, opium in Afghanistan, Chinese opium wars, the Spanish American War, World War II, the Geneva Conventions, Middle Eastern oil, genocide of Muslims, Pentagon contracts with Blackwater [now called Academi], privatized prisons, public health, FEMA’s response following Hurricane Katrina, etc., will affirm that our raison d’etre is capitalism with a capital “C”. Inconsequential to the media spin that paid pundits pontificate, nothing in US public policy ever threatens profitability. Subsequently, less than one hundred plutocrats now own more than half of our nation’s wealth. What’s wrong with this picture of “Get a good education, pick yourself up by your bootstraps, and live the American dream”? IF history is a barometer of future events, then is the New World Order really “new” or just a new phase of American hubris? Stated differently, do other countries hate the United States or do they hate our barbaric hegemony? Any nation that vacates GOD’s commandments, by default will become more ungodly and more evil. We hold these truths to be self-evident in a nation wherein “In God We Trust” has become a mere creed on the money upon which it is printed. Ergo, Baphomet is delighted to see Satan’s sons and daughters destroying righteousness and religious freedom throughout the United States. Even a blind agnostic can see that it’s ludicrous to ban the Bible and prayer in public schools, to persecute Christians, to redefine marriage to include homosexuality, and still pray when a US soldier is killed in the Middle East. Quite bluntly, it makes no sense whatsoever to think GOD will bless America for such heresy. Lucifer relentlessly tricks and treats mammon via temptations such as pecuniary assets, political power, physical pleasure, and purchased pulchritude. Nevertheless, our Pentagon and Presidents never apologize or repent for our crimes against humanity. Therefore, whenever our position on genocide, torture, xenophobia, global warming, or crimes against humanity, etc., becomes morally indefensible, is it possible, plausible, probable, or preposterous to think that our insouciant citizenry is well-conditioned to respond via delusion, duplicity, and dishonesty? I rest my case…Pavlov, ring the bell posthaste!
Most Americans are spiritually blind, in part, via their not having studied the Scriptures. Believe it or not, we are living in the Last Days. American hubris is accelerating the time line for the Battle of Armageddon. Why? Any nation that vacates GOD’s commandments, by default, will become more ungodly and more evil. Nevertheless, as Biblical prophecy affirms, the remnant of real Christians will suffer persecution and be put to death. Yet, the Bible says GOD will reward our bravery under fire, so Saints, be ye steadfast, unmovable, and always abounding in the Word, the Will, and the Work of the Lord.
In a nation wherein “In God We Trust” has become a mere creed on the money upon which is it printed, the Church of Satan is one of the fastest growing “churches” in the United States. Therefore, is it possible, plausible, probable, or preposterous to think that many of the “Christians” who promote and pontificate utilization of the NIV Bible also worship Baphomet or Lucifer? Explain.
“And I saw an angel come down from Heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old Serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season. And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years. And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, and shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of Heaven, and devoured them. And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. And I saw a great white throne, and Him that sat on it, from whose face the Earth and the Heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and Hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and Hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”
[Revelation 20: 1-15]
