Old Orchard Beach Camp Meetings 2014

Watch the different meetings from the Old Orchard Beach Camp meetings 2014 with Mannssambandet and Commissioners Krommenhoek from Norway. Here is the link.

The Swedish Church of the Non-Believers
- Sven Ljungholm in FSAOF - "Sweden’s is the largest Lutheran church in the world, yet some call it the church of the non-believers because it’s also the most secular and religiously apathetic country in the world. Swedes choose to belong to the church because it provides a convenient and historically important meeting place for family occasions including infant baptisms, weddings and funerals.
Ninety percent of all Swedes are still buried with a church service, according to the Church of Sweden. It also serves as a refuge in times of national crisis such as the sinking of the ferry Estonia in 1994, in which 800 people died, most of them Swedes. The SA played a significant role in providing emergency assistance and grief counselling.
A recent survey by the Church of Sweden found that about two-thirds of the country’s 9.4 million people belong to the church. Yet, only 15 percent of church members say they believe in Jesus Christ. An equal percentage of Swedes call themselves atheists."


"We were wrong - terribly wrong"

- Sven Ljungholm FSAOF - "In 2007 Theo Boer, a European assisted suicide watchdog wrote that ‘there doesn’t need to be a slippery slope when it comes to euthanasia. A good euthanasia law, in combination with the euthanasia review procedure, provides the warrants for a stable and relatively
low number of euthanasia.’ Most of his colleagues drew the same conclusion.

But, says Theo Boer, today; “We were wrong - terribly wrong, in fact. In hindsight, the stabilisation in the numbers was just a temporary pause. Six years ago, the numbers of these deaths show an increase of 15% annually, year after year.” And since then the number has doubled with the 6,000 line to be crossed this year. Euthanasia is on the way to become a ‘default’ mode of dying for cancer patients.

As the assisted suicide bill goes to Lords in the UK, the Dutch watchdog who once backed euthanasia warns UK of 'slippery slope' to mass deaths. Boer’s intervention comes as peers prepare to debate the Assisted Dying Bill, promoted by Lord Falconer, a Labour former Lord Chancellor."


A Germans View on the silence....

-An email drop down in my mailbox -

            "An interesting take on The Silent Majority, powerfully argued
          A German's View on Islam - worth reading. This is by far the best explanation of the Muslim terrorist situation I have ever read. His references to past history are accurate and clear. Not long, easy to understand, and well worth the read. The author of this email is Dr. Emanuel Tanya, a well-known and well-respected psychiatrist.
        A man, whose family was German aristocracy prior to World War II, owned a number of large industries and  estates. When asked how many German people were true Nazis, the answer he gave can guide our attitude toward fanaticism. 
            'Very few people were true Nazis,' he said, 'but many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many  more were too busy to care. I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come.’ 
            ‘My family lost everything. I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies destroyed my factories.' 
            ‘We are told again and again by 'experts' and 'talking heads' that Islam is a religion of peace and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace. Although this unqualified assertion may be true, it is entirely irrelevant. It is meaningless fluff meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the spectre of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam.’
            ‘The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history. It is the fanatics who march. It is  the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars worldwide. It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave. It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder, or honour-kill. It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque. It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals. It is the fanatics who teach their young to kill and to become suicide bombers.’ 
            ‘The hard, quantifiable fact is that the peaceful majority, the 'silent majority,' is cowed and  extraneous. Communist Russia was comprised of Russians who just wanted to live in peace, yet the Russian Communists were responsible for the murder of about 20 million people. The peaceful majority were irrelevant. China's huge population was peaceful as well, but Chinese Communists managed to kill a staggering 70 million people.’
            ‘The average Japanese individual prior to World War II was not a warmongering sadist. Yet, Japan murdered and slaughtered its way across South East Asia in an orgy of killing that included the systematic murder of 12 million Chinese civilians; most killed by sword, shovel, and bayonet. And who can forget Rwanda, which collapsed into butchery? Could it not be said that the majority of Rwandans were 'peace loving'?
            ‘History lessons are often  incredibly simple and blunt, yet for all our powers of reason, we often miss the most basic and uncomplicated of points: peace-loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by their silence. Peace-loving Muslims will become our enemy if they don't speak up, because like my friend from Germany, they will awaken one day and find that the fanatics own them, and the end of their world will  have begun.’
            ‘Peace-loving Germans, Japanese, Chinese, Russians, Rwandans, Serbs, Afghans, Iraqis, Palestinians, Somalis, Nigerians, Algerians, and many others have died because the peaceful majority did not speak up until it was too late.’ 
            ‘Now Islamic prayers have been  introduced in Toronto and other public  schools in Ontario, and, yes, in  Ottawa,  too, while the Lord's Prayer was removed (due to being so offensive?). The  Islamic way may be peaceful for the time being in our country until the  fanatics move in.’
            ‘In Australia, and indeed in many countries around the world, many of the most commonly consumed food items have the halal emblem on them. Just look at the back of some of the most popular chocolate bars, and at other food items in your local supermarket. Food on aircraft have the halal emblem just to appease the privileged minority who are now rapidly expanding within the nation's shores.’
            ‘In the U.K, the Muslim communities refuse to integrate and there are now dozens of "no-go" zones within major cities across the country that the police force dare not  intrude upon. Sharia law prevails there, because the Muslim community in those areas refuse to acknowledge British law.’ 
            ‘As for us who watch it all unfold, we must pay attention to the only group that counts - the fanatics who threaten our way of life.’"
