    Unfortunately this is how many of them think. We have to be vigilant.

    Dear Anchoress,

    I clicked on the short film of the doctor talking to the other and although I closed “IT” immediately after so I could click on your next link provided, I thanked God that we humans still have enough good spiritual cells who have not yet been swallowed whole by these so called spiritual illegal aliens and that we still have enough energy to try and fight off The “Evil” one if you know what I mean? :)

    As I again read your appropriate read that your Angel recommended, “IT” reminded me of so much that I’ve experienced in my pass which I really just want to forget about such as seeing adult so called Down Children with their tongues going in and out of their mouth and there was nothing they could do to con troll, I mean control “IT” and all of this took place in church. By then I met a lot of people who had just started new church careers and many are NOW of great help to Our Lord and Savior Jesus Our Christ who as you know, by His Cross and Resurrection set U>S All free. Anyway, to make a long story short, back then I chose to be lazy and not educate myself in their too quickly changing ways so I hid from my duties by doing my own spiritual things. In all fairness, some of my reality spiritual cells did try to tell them that they were moving too fast but when 99% invisible cells don’t want to follow what is “ONE” reality body to do if you know what I mean?

    Alright Anchoress, I’m getting there!

    I don’t know if I’ve ever blogged about what I will try to tell you next cause between you and me I don’t usually go back too often and read cause “IT” is just too scary and if you don’t believe me just ask people who have insisted that their songs and what have you be quietly removed from my site. If I may there’s one little story that I think I should share and if I’m wrong, I’m sure you’ll do what you must.

    I’ll try to make “IT” a short story.

    I think that I had just received The Body and Blood of our Lord after a mass and I continued pretending that I was holier than thow cause you might say that my spirit and soul at least would find out the truth in time cause I truly believed that He was the only “ONE” who could safely look into my heart and know the truth and then show me the straight and narrow way.

    Anyway shortly after Communion, my tongue started going in and out of my mouth at will and there was nothing I could do and thinking about “IT” NOW, I still find “IT” a little scary if you know what i mean? If Angels existed, I can just imagine how emberrassing “IT” must have been when That Good Looking Angel was set straight by the rest of God’s Angels while thinking that he was so special. Of course Our Heavenly Father would have still LOVED him and probably would have cried for forty days and nights begging His other angels to show a little empathy. I hear ya! Back to my story!?

    I drove to my mom and dad’s house and folks you would almost think that souls and spirit really do exist and travel from body to body cause without saying a word and while
    I layed on their couch, mom came and placed a cross on my forehead and then just let me be.

    When I later got up, my tongue still continued to do what “IT” wanted and to make another long story short, my dad eventually pulled my hands away from my mouth and cursed like I had never heard him curse before and all I’m going to repeat here is his first sentence which is, “They had no right to do that!”

    God Bless his soul and Anchoress, I’ll close by saying that he must have known what he was doing because I was healed about a minute or so later and “IT” has never happened since. Go Figure! :)

    God Bless Peace

    God, it was painful to listen to that jerk. Lucky he’s only a cartoon or I would have wanted reach into the screen and crush his throat between my hands. Bio-ethically, of course.

    This is a very thought provoking video. I’m not surprised that someone could be this misguided by academia. To quote the great philosopher Confucius (551-479 B.C.): He who learns but does not think, is lost!

    Just replace “degree in philosophy” with “imaginary friend” and the guy is making the same claim to authority as the Pope, or any other priest.

    You don’t need to be a philosopher in order to say all that things, or..we are all philosophers.. :)) Still..interesting video. :)
