neutral Kentucky officials have agreed to a settlement requiring them to take steps to ensure children are not subjected to religious proselytization, coercion, or discrimination when they are placed by the state with taxpayer-funded, residential child-care providers.

Lie of the Month

It's a sin to speak with spirits.

     Some people have concerns about sitting with a medium or consulting a psychic because they think that doing so puts them at odds with certain teachings in the Bible. The main support for this belief in the Old Testament is from the book known as Leviticus. The key verse (generally labeled 19:31) says, “Do not turn to mediums or wizards, do not seek them out to be defiled by them.” There is another verse in Leviticus and one in Deuteronomy that clearly judge those who make a practice of talking to dead people: “A man or woman who is a medium or a wizard shall be put to death;” and “There shall not be found among you any one who … is a medium [for they are] an abomination to the Lord.”
     There can be no doubt that these statements are in the Bible and that they distinctly prohibit consultations with the spirit world. If you accept Leviticus and Deuteronomy as the inerrant word of the Almighty, then you would be wise to avoid any contact with mediums or psychics. But, before you make such a decision, you might want to know what else you are signing on for. . . . [read more]


Article of the Month

Ben Franklin on Death

". . . We are spirits. That bodies should be lent us, while they can afford us pleasure, assist us in acquiring knowledge, or doing good to our fellow creatures, is a kind and benevolent act of God — when they become unfit for these purposes and afford us pain instead of pleasure — instead of an aid, become an incumbrance and answer none of the intentions for which they were given, it is equally kind and benevolent that a way is provided by which we may get rid of them.  . . ."  [read more]



Case of the Month

The Phantom Fingertips

Case #41: An uncommon case in that it is based on three sessions, each with a different medium, each taking place about a year apart from the others.  . . .  [read more]

Worth Repeating This Month
"Unfortunately, the idea of a tangible satanic force that must be battled out in the world is familiar to tens of millions of fundamentalist and evangelical Christians. At various times, the group said to embody this Evil has been identified as pagans, Jews, Muslims, Catholics, Mormons, and communists. These days they’re homosexuals, liberals, and pornographers." — Dr. Marty Klein
“Everyone will live after what you call death, not because of believing in a creed, a doctrine or a dogma, but because it is an unalterable natural law. It has nothing to do with religion. It is a law equal to the law of cause and effect." — Silver Birch

Book CoverThe Dark Side of Christian History — Helen Ellerbe
Over the past 2 millenia, the Christian church has oppressed, brutilized, and killed millions of individuals in it's rather successful efforts to control and repress spirituality. This book reveaks in painstaking detail the tragedies, sorrows, and injustices inflicted upon humanity by the church. Ellerbe's expose is a compelling and passionate cry for human dignity and spiritual freedom. Required reading for all playful spirits.
