Witness to Integrity: The Crisis of the Immaculate&hellip by Anita Marie Caspary
Power corrupts, and power to do wrong corrupts absolutely. This book is the testimony of an arrogant, misguided, ignorant (God save us from ignoramuses who get their ignorance out of books), self-righteous, vain woman whose vanity is such that she refuses to acknowledge, so much as in a footnote, that her whole adventure into sex and disbelief began with the ideological labours of a few mainpulative, power-drunk, pseudo-intellectual MEN - males, power-tripping patriarchy members, penile power maniacs, whatever you want to call them: psychologist Carl Rogers and his accomplices, none of whom had a vagina.

What is more, the story is astonishingly old-fashioned - it reads like a rip-off of… Read more

Having gone out of their way to outrage any and every Christian sensitivity with an artsy but artistically vile product called THE LAST TEMPTATION OF JESUS, the clever people in Hollywood worked themselves into a frenzy of terror when they saw the members of the religion they had insulted actually turn up on their streets, in an orderly and perfectly peaceful demonstration. Victimized by their own self-created images of Christians as vicious bloodthirsty persecutors, they… Read more
