Holy Week in America: a time when many people are called to reflect upon the Passion of The Saviour and their own sins in order to become more righteous. Unfortunately, the Holy Week of 2014 has started out with more hate and hypocrisy than repentance.

Kansas Jewish Center Shooting Suspect Identified as Former KKK Leader

A well-known white supremacist, Frazier Glenn Cross, alleged shot 3 people in front of two Jewish community centers. Two of them, Dr. William Lewis Corporon and his 14-year-old grandson Reat Griffin Underwood, were not Jewish, but Methodists. 

In an act of hate that struct President Obama (who knew their pastor - see below), Cross started this year's Holy Week with an anti-Semitism worthy of any of today's neo-Nazis. His rants were chronicled as early as 2006, but it is perhaps his 2010 run for the U.S. Senate that captures more of his ideology than anything else. 



Utah woman allegedly killed 7 babies she gave birth to over 10 years, hid bodies in garage

     Megan Huntsman, 39, was arrested Sunday and booked on six counts of murder after cops discovered the tiny bodies stuffed in separate cardboard boxes in the garage of her former home in Pleasant Grove. DNA samples taken from Huntsman and her husband will determine whether the two are the parents as investigators believe.

Holy Week is always chock-a-block with mysteries, but the real mystery here lies in the fact that neither Huntsman's own children (now in their 20's) nor her neighbors knew she was pregnant at all! Motives are running wild because everyone thought of Megan as quite "normal". Maybe the neighbors and relatives are not normal. Maybe "denial" is their way of life. 

Perhaps the saddest outcome of the story will be what America's media will make of it: a hypocritical circus. Both pro-life and pro-choice will be scrambling to make an issue of it. The "passion" in this Passion Week will be on both sides.  

Ugandan Group Issues Urgent Appeal For Aid In Helping HIV Volunteer Flee Country

     GEHO Uganda has issued an urgent appeal for financial assistance in helping a Ugandan HIV/AIDS volunteer flee her country. The woman is currently in hiding and is being sought by police after being accused of violating Uganda's Anti-Homosexuality Act through her work.

The exporting of hate and its ramifications has hit America's Holy Week: giving sanctuary to any gay Ugandan at this time will be looked upon as an act of compassion by some, but an outlandish contempt for the laws of a "Christian" country by people like Tonyt Perkins of the Family Research Council. Speaking of which:

Perkins: Chick-Fil-A CEO Dan Cathy Is A Coward For Retreating On Gay Marriage

     Hate group leader Tony Perkins appeared on the Fox News show of Mike Huckabee yesterday to denounce Chick-Fil-A CEO Dan Cathy as a "coward" for backing out of the same-sex marriage issue.
