Residents Want Church Property Cleaned Up
POSTED: 6:14 pm EST March 1, 2006
UPDATED: 6:46 pm EST March 1, 2006
BOSTON -- Boston officials seized a bus on Wednesday that was parked on church property amid allegations that sex and drug parties were held inside the vehicle.
NewsCenter 5's Sean Kelly reported that the bus was parked on the property of the Faith Tabernacle Church. The mayor's office and a neighborhood response team said that despite the bus' previous use for good, what went on inside the bus had to stop.
"We went in and found out that they were using it for drugs and sex and all that activity. We are in the process of towing it and trying to get rid of the bus," Boston Inspectional Services spokesman Darryl Smith said. "We found some old needles and condoms and a lot of drug paraphernalia on the bus."
Residents said that people also dump trash on the church property. "Nobody is doing anything. (People) come and dump trash right on the church property. It makes the whole place look terrible," Dorchester resident Alexander Leon said.
Prayer Tower Church Pastor Antoine Montgomery Sr., whose church is across the street from the property, hopes officials clean up the area.
"We want to have a nice, clean community, where we can have a place for the children to come to a nice area. The area would be nice and not so much garbage and things in the neighborhood," Montgomery said.

ONITSHA, Nigeria, Feb 23 (Reuters) - Christian youths burned the corpses of Muslims on Thursday on the streets of Onitsha in southeastern Nigeria, the city worst hit by religious riots that have killed at least 146 people across the country in five days.
Christian mobs, seeking revenge for the killings of Christians in the north, attacked Muslims with machetes, set fire to them, destroyed their houses and torched mosques in two days of violence in Onitsha, where 93 people died.
"We are very happy that this thing is happening so that the north will learn their lesson," said Anthony Umai, a motorcycle taxi rider, standing close to where Christian youths had piled up the corpses of 10 Muslims and were burning them.
Dozens more corpses had been thrown into the back of pick-up trucks by security services overnight, residents said.
Uncertainty over Nigeria's political future is aggravating regional, ethnic and religious rivalries in Africa's most populous nation and top oil exporter.
Elections are due next year and many Nigerians believe President Olusegun Obasanjo and some state governors will try to stay on after eight years in power. The prospect angers those who want their own ethnic or regional blocs to have their turn.
Militants in the oil-producing Niger Delta have waged a three-month campaign of attacks and kidnappings, which has cut exports and driven up world oil prices. One of their demands is greater control over their region and its resources.
There was no fighting in Onitsha on Thursday but Emeka Umeh, of human rights group the Civil Liberties Organisation, called it "the peace of the graveyard".
Some charred corpses were still lying on the streets and hundreds of Muslim men, women and children fled the city crammed into open-top trucks for fear of more killings. Thousands more were hiding in army barracks and police stations.
Umeh said most of the bodies his group counted were Hausa, but some Ibo were killed too. The Hausa are the main ethnic group in northern Nigeria and most are Muslim, while the Ibo are dominant in the southeast and almost all are Christian.
It is impossible to verify the exact number of deaths but Red Cross figures from all the different cities give a toll of 146. Local authorities decline to give death tolls.
In northern Maiduguri, where the Christian Association of Nigeria says 50 Christians were killed in a weekend riot that began as a protest against cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad, tensions were high during several Christian funeral masses.
The Red Cross said at least 21 people died in Maiduguri and 9,000 were driven from their homes.
A crowd of Christian youths broke away from the burial of one of the victims, a Catholic priest, and ran shouting through the streets before police dispersed them.
At the funeral of 13 children from two families who were burnt in their houses, mourners wailed as police stood by.
News of the Maiduguri killings set off the bloodletting in Onitsha, and tit-for-tat violence spread on Wednesday to Enugu, another southeastern city, where seven people were killed.
Nigeria's 140 million people are divided about equally between Muslims in the north and Christians in the south, but sizeable religious minorities live in both regions.
Thousands of people have been killed in religious violence since the restoration of democracy in 1999. Killings in one part of the country often spark reprisals elsewhere.
The triggers for riots that killed at least at least 46 people, mostly Christians, in northern Maiduguri, Bauchi and Katsina, were different, but religious and secular leaders have linked them to political tensions.
In Bauchi, an alleged blasphemy started the trouble, while in Katsina it was a constitutional review that many see as an attempt to keep Obasanjo in power.
The constitution bars Obasanjo, a Christian from the southwest, from seeking a third term in 2007 and he says he will uphold the charter. But he has declined to comment on a powerful movement to amend the constitution to allow him to stay.
Maiduguri and Katsina are both hosting public hearings on constitutional reform this week which many Nigerians believe are geared towards furthering the so-called third term agenda. (Additional reporting by Estelle Shirbon in Abuja, Ibrahim Mshelizza in Maiduguri and Tume Ahemba in Lagos)
OK seriously...if this god is all accepting and all that jazz, wouldn't you think that any worship would appease him?
I would be willing to bet this is some poor soul out there hoping that another religion will make their life better.
Don't put all your faith in something as inconclusive as religion. It's not life changing or improving...you need to work on yourself.

This totally blows my mind. I mean really, I'm in complete shock over this, the fact that it was even on TV. well look at the picture...looks like someone used baby oil or something like that and painted on paper that isn't absorbent then laid it on the sheet...well that's what i think happen. i will never buy the story that the lister is trying to pass off as true. This is definitely something to look at. Who would pay this kind of money even if half of it does go to charity? seriously...i bet it's all a sham. "I pitty the fool," who actually bids on this one.

I found a snowboard that had what looked like bumper stickers made into it. One of them said "Jesus died for our sins so we might as well take advantage of it."
I thought it was hilarious and perfect to post here ;)

A starving Kenyan woman placed a powerful tribal curse on God, accusing him of sending famine, and died in her sleep, local newspapers said Thursday.
The woman from eastern Kenya's drought-ravaged Kangundo district decided to invoke a dreaded oath from the Kamba community, famed for its potent witchcraft, media reports said.
"Whoever brought this famine, let him perish," the woman chanted, striking a cooking pot with a stick.
"She accomplished the feat at 10 a.m. and waited for the results, but God's wrath struck at night. She died peacefully in her sleep," the Kenya Times newspaper said.
Poor rains for three years running have left more than 3.5 million Kenyans on the edge of starvation, prompting President Mwai Kibaki to declare the drought a national disaster.
***I just find it hard to believe that it was an act of god that this woman died. i mean seriously...if she was starving, couldn't she have died from starvation?

Your ideals are mostly spiritual, but in an individualistic way. While spirituality is very important in your life, organized religion itself may not be for you. It is best for you to seek these things on your own terms.

A cinnamon bun that resembles the late Mother Teresa has been stolen from a US cafe.
The owner of the Bongo Java coffee shop arrived to find that the famous pastry had been taken from the shop in Nashville, Tennessee.
The "Nun Bun" was preserved and put in a glass case at the shop, where it was discovered by a customer in 1996 reports BBC online.
The shop sold T-shirts, prayer cards and mugs with the bun's image until Mother Teresa wrote a letter asking the sales be stopped, before her death in 1997.
Mr Bernstein said the thief "went right for the bun. Unfortunately I think it's somebody who wanted to take it to destroy it."
OK...So i found this article on Yahoo Oddly Enough a few weeks ago. I mean really a bun that looks like Mother Theresa...can the fanatics be anymore insane?!?!?!
