Happy Chanuka

Hey there!
Happy Chanuka to all of you out there in blog-land.

I moved AND started a new job in October so I've been keeping busy. So busy I almost forgot I was the proud owner of this little blog here.

I don't check in here often (as you may have noticed, or um... stopped noticing) but I still see any comments my blog gets come through in my email in box and there is nothing like a little hate-in-the-face to remind you you own a blog. It was one of those "Hitler was right" kind of comments to fairly inoffensive post (actually I try to make ALL my posts as inoffensive as possible) and when I saw the email I was like... "Hey! I have a blog!" and also "People sure hate Jews!" but mostly the first. I'll be deleting that comment shortly.

Speaking of inoffensive - this "Happy Holidays" thing is going a little too far for me this year. Are we really going to pretend Christmas doesn't exist. My company just put out the list of days off for 2012 with Easter listed as "Spring Holiday" and Christmas as "Winter Holiday." Really??
It's December 25th, it's not any day of the winter you choose... If Christmas is a legal holiday in this country let's not pretend it isn't. I am not offended by reality, is anyone?

If anything I think I'm offended that people feel they have to tap dance around me and other non-Christians. I think we can handle it.

Wishing everyone a Happy Chanuka!

Agree 100%. I hate this "offense culture." So childish.

I clicked over from Jameel's blog, just to see whether you'd posted anything in the last . . . er, number of months, and was pleasantly surprised to find that you're blogging again. Welcome back! Hope all goes well with the new residence, not to mention the job hunt.

Happy Last Day of Chanukah! (Posted Dec. 28, 2011)

Though this information has been released in the United States, most of the world is unaware that the Messiah has come, and has fulfilled all major Jewish, Christian, Gnostic and Masonic prophecies.

He has been demonstrating unprecedented miracles, and has been punishing "apostate Christians" in America, on a massive scale.

On Thursday April 12th 2012, he will be introduced to Israel, and he will be holding a live press event "for Israel bloggers only" at 7pm (Jerusalem time). He will be taking questions live, and you will be able to simulcast this interview on your blog, and ask him questions.

If you are skeptical it is understandable, but unquestionable evidence has been gathered since his introduction in the U.S, and you can read some of it, and see the amazing video proof here: http://www.LordRayEl.org.

To better your chances of having your questions answered, we ask that you submit them in writing no later than April 9th, and we will reply with instructions on how your blog needs to connect to the event.

You may begin promoting this event to your followers now.

You have received this invitation from one of our clergy, but to send your questions and confirm your participation, send email to: media-inquiries@ra-el.org with "Blog Interview" in the subject line.
