Commentary on Andrew Sullivan’s article,
“Religion, the motive the left refuses to see amid the carnage of Boston.”
There are several things we cannot confidently say about the motives of Tameran Tsarnaev in bombing the crowd at the finish of the Boston marathon. We do not know all the details of his psychological profile; we do not know the identity of a figure called Misha, who was apparently instrumental in Tsarnaev’s radicalisation; we do not know why he chose the marathon as his target; we do not fully know the role of his younger brother or his wife, who claims total surprise at the events. Any act as violent as his is “multi-determined”, as my shrink unhelpfully puts it. Every individual is a unique blend of DNA, experience and psychological complexity. It’s worth keeping that in mind before we reduce someone to a caricature.
We can agree with this section as in all things there are many factors in a decision and the course of action taken.
But we do know this: Tsarnaev was a fanatical, extremist Muslim – and his brother has testified that “defending Islam” was the motive. Tsarnaev’s YouTube page is crammed with Islamist conspiracy theories, apocalyptic myths and violent Islamist imagery. He disrupted his own mosque’s services by ranting that it was wrong to honour Martin Luther King Jr because he wasn’t a Muslim.

NOT A BIGOT”

North Korea Undercover
Here we were reminded of the visit and the revisit of John Sweeney to the Industry of death exhibition on Psychiatry a few years ago. The cult allusions were all over this documentary:
The filming by the N Koreans of John was similar to that of the Scientologists, who photograph you photographing them. The cult like propaganda and brainwashing of the general population reminds us of the way this happens in the Scientology world of mind control. Also the deification of Kim Il Sung and his tombs remind one of the places where they have life like statues of L R Hubbard. Also the concentration camps are reminiscent of the Rehabilitation Project Force camps in Scientology, though obviously the scale of this is not yet realised at the state level.
Imagine if LRH had succeeded in getting his project to ‘clear the planet’ in place in South Africa or Rhodesia? The best he could do was wander around the Mediterranean in the Apollo with his fantasy crew who were abused. If he had succeeded North Korea would be a good look a like for Scientologistan.

This is part of an archive from the former DCI site in Aarhus, Denmark. Our web master is doing sterling work to provide information from this archive to make sure that the great work of Johannes Aagaard will be preserved. We remember his great contribution 6 years after his death!
When Johannes Aagaard retired in 1998 he hoped to bring a massive amount of material into the public domain and to write significant material where he could bring his great genius to realisation.
Johannes Aagaard was a Danish theologian and evangelist. He was a professor of missiology at the University of Aarhus and was active in the Christian countercult movement as the founder of the Dialog
His awareness of the cult phenomenon was unique, and his record of successful court cases against Scientology was impressive!
When in dialogue with Fecris he put forward the view that you can’t understand deeds without understanding creeds or beliefs. Fecris stressed they only looked at deeds. Dialogue Ireland was part of this Christian apologetic movement. However, it has now moved its direction from a Faith based organisation to that of protecting Human Rights.
So now being part of Fecris raises no problem for us as we see the issue is not about beliefs but about influence. That does not mean it does not help to understand a movement to look at their beliefs. This seems to be the position of the French Interior Minister Valls.
Fecris is secular but not secularist. Religious organisations assisting victims must retain their faith basis, but it is not about promoting religion. Secularist and Religious believers’ must not just cooperate together but celebrate the unity of purpose we share on Cultism.
