Today is Good Friday. It is Friday, April 10, 2020.

The Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem has closed its doors. This is the first time it has done so since the Black Death in 1349. In my opinion, The Coronavirus or COVID 19 is not the Black Death. Those who have manipulated this operation are the Black Death.

COVID 19 is the perfect mechanism to get everything you want, assuming you are Satan or a servant of Satan. Here is an imaginary conversation with myself about what I might do if I were an evil billionaire servant of Satan.

Churches are shut down. This is unprecedented. What would Jesus do on Palm Sunday?

Here is a radio essay that challenges the accepted view of this "virus" and invites us to entertain other possibilities. A truism falsely attributed to Aristotle, but nonetheless clever goes like this: "The mark of an educated mind is to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it."

Topics covered include viewpoints of independent scientists and citizen journalists exposing holes in the offical narrative.

Sermon for Sunday, March 22, 2020, the Fourth Sunday of Lent. 

"We have one but one task. We are here to bear witness to what is real. Your courageous bearing of witness can help awaken others. This is how God will defeat evil by awakening us all to Truth. Regardless of what others think. Regardless of what others do. Regardless of the powers of darkness. Seek what is real for yourself. Bear witness to what is real. Do not be afraid. Center yourself. Remember who you are. You are love. You are strength. You are a child of God."

One of the most fun things that happened at KBOO was an impromptu live show with Paul Roland when due to a communication mix-up the scheduled host didn't show. We took over and opened it up to phone calls. We talked about the world-wide protests, the military-industrial complex, and much, much more. Enjoy.

In March 2018 I had a live interview scheduled with Dr. Kevin Barrett on my monthly show, "The Beloved Community" on KBOO. Through a smear campaign led by Rose City Antifa complete with name-calling, character assassination, and a deluge of tweets and phone calls, the station staff and management were pressured to stop the interview and actually ban Kevin Barrett from being on the air. (Staff and management claim they were not pressured.) I appealed the decision but my appeal was never addressed. Dr. Barrett never had an opportunity to defend himself. Volunteers or the membership never had an opportunity to review this process. 

On December 13th, 2019 I broadcast a pre-recorded show that included audio from the last sermon I gave to my church, an interview with Dr. David Ray Griffin and a speech Dr. Kevin Barrett delivered at a KBOO-sponsored event at Portland State in February 2018 about US-Saudi relations. Staff, in response to phone calls, stopped the broadcast in the midst of Dr. Barrett's speech and played Christmas music! In protest to this personal disrespect and censorship, I decided to take a sabbatical from my volunteer duties and support of KBOO and move my show to a platform that respects the spirit of the First Amendment. You can read my story here.

Over Christmas, Dr. Barrett interviewed me for his radio show, Truth Jihad, and gave me permission and encouragement to rebroadcast that interview on my program.
