Pre-Christian Era

Manicheans/Stoics see material things as evil. Marriage is material; therefore, it is evil. For more details, please see Source 1 and Source 2.

  • 1-16 CE (Common Era): Jesus is born of Mary in the Nazareth area.
  • 16-19 CE (Common Era): Jesus studies in Buddhist monasteries of India. (See Elizabeth Clare Prophet’s “The Last Years of Jesus,” pp. 260+.)
  • 19-33 CE (Common Era): Jesus is involved in carpentry, preaching, and teaching. Jesus prefers Mary Magdalen over the other Apostles (See “The Gospel of Philip,” Nag Hammadi Library, p. 148; pp. 63-64; see Margaret Starbird’s The Woman with the Alabaster Jar, and The Goddess in the Gospel.)
  • 33 CE (Common Era): Mary Magdalen flees persecution with Joseph of Arimathea to Egypt. After the death of Jesus, she travels to Southern France, where she gives birth to a female child. A vibrant community of Amor centers around them. (See Margaret Starbird’s The Woman with the Alabaster Jar, p. 60+)
  • 46-1,200 CE (Common Era): 39 popes were married. (See article by John Shuster, p. 2.)
  • 340-420 CE (Common Era): “Saint” Jerome did the following:
    1. Jerome is infected with a Stoicism/Manichaeism
    2. Jerome counseled Blesilla, the daughter of a wealthy widow who financed his scriptural work, to fast to the extreme to control the desires of the flesh.

      Blesilla died as a result. (See p. 1 and Will Durant’s Caesar and Christ: The Story of Civilization, Volume III.)

    3. Into Latin, Jerome translated the Old Testament Hebrew and the New Testament Greek.
    4. Jerome substituted sister for wife in the original language of the New Testament in the following: “Don’t I have the right to follow the example of the other Apostle and the Lord’s brother and Peter by taking a Christian wife with me on my trips?” (See 1 Cor. 9:5.)
    5. Jerome’s mistranslations are responsible for:
      1. Roman Catholic Prohibition on Birth Control (See the Book of Tobias 8: 5-10)
      2. Bolstering celibacy (See Corinthians 9: 5)
      3. Gross Anti-Semitism (See: Mt. 22: 15-22; Mt. 23: 1-12; Mt. 26: 1-5; Mt. 26: 14-27: 66; Mk. 11: 15-19; Mk. 12: 38-40; Mk. 14-15, Lk. 13: 10-17; Lk 14: 1-14; Lk 22: 52-53, Lk 23: 1-49, Jn. 9: 1-4; Jn 12: 40-43; Jn. 18: 12-40, Jn. 19: 1-37.)

Pharmaceutical Political Influence in the USA

“The largest pharmaceutical companies and their two trade groups, Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) and Biotechnology Innovation Organization, lobbied on at least 1,600 pieces of legislation between 1998 and 2004. According to the non-partisan Center for Responsive Politics, pharmaceutical companies spent $900 million on lobbying between 1998 and 2005, more than any other industry.

During the same period, they donated $89.9 million to federal candidates and political parties, giving approximately three times as much to Republicans as to Democrats. [1] According to the Center for Public Integrity, from January 2005 through June 2006 alone, the pharmaceutical industry spent approximately $182 million on Federal lobbying [2] The industry has 1,274 registered lobbyists in Washington D.C.
