The gigantic hero Myles Munroe was born on 20th April 1954.The great Bahamian icon was brought-up in a poor family of 11 children. He grew up in the Nassau constituency of Bain Town and was an all-time resident of the Commonwealth. Mr Munroe became a staunch Christian in his teenage years. Afterwards he went to Oral Roberts University where he studied Theology, Education, and Fine Arts.
The legendary Myles Munroe was extremely passionate about his studies which lead to him furthering his education with a Master’s degree in Administration from the University of Tulsa in 1980. Progressing to higher heights, he received honorary doctoral degrees from various distinguished institutions. Mr Munroe worked as an assistant professor of the Graduate School of Theology and has written influential and motivational books which have helped to transform souls universally.
Personal Life of Myles Munroe
It is very crucial to give you a brief history of this great icon. He married his beloved Queen Ruth Munroe who in profound loyalty assisted him as a co-pastor in Bahamas Faith Ministries. Munroe and Ruth were blessed with two children namely Chairo and Charisa. Myles had a very admirable family which was firmly grounded in a healthy fear of God, diligence, determination, and the passion for witnessing the truth.
Myles Munroe the Intelligent Fighter and a Conqueror
Every great leader has had to pass thru a horrible dark cave before getting into the light of the world. Myles Munroe was very gifted with an incredible strength to overcome uncomfortable predicaments and the ability to combat the challenges that attempted to limit his destiny. At the impressionable age of 14 years this super motivator received some nasty critiques from his teacher.
The arrogant teacher, Mr. Robertson from the United Kingdom, called Myles Munroe a black monkey. This teacher had already noted that Myles was highly gifted and had a unique vision compared to the other white students. Mr Munroe was very aggravated and after going home on break he shared with his mother about the excruciating insult from Mr. Robertson.
Mr Munroe’s mother instructed her son to read one of the Pauline letters in the New Testament Bible. Myles took the bible and read Ephesians 3:20 which says,’’ now to him who can accomplish far more than all we ask or imagine, by the power at work within us, to him be glory in Christ and church to all generations, forever and ever.’’
This was a turning point for Myles Munroe. He began to prosper when he realized that the power to become great on this earthly planet is not in his teacher, but the zeal to succeed is inside him. This triggered and activated Munroe to study diligently and emerged as the top student in his class.
The Delicious, Juicy and Spectacular Philosophy
Dr. Myles firmly believed that everyone was born with a divine purpose despite being black or white. Millions of people indelibly remember his poignant quote. He said that the greatest tragedy is not death but to live a life without a purpose. This is a weighty quote which has challenged millions of people to change their lifestyles and to live and die for what they were born to do. Human beings should not enjoy living in their safe comfort zones, but they must change and risk to invent new things.
Myles highlighted and explained that the Holy Scripture revolves around the Kingdom of God. He explained in length that the earthly kingdom shares in the greater kingdom of God. He challenged people to actualize their glory and to obey the heavenly kingdom which is ruled by God. Myles Munroe preached in thoughtful parables like our Lord Jesus Christ.
In his book Reveal Your Glory he said that the wealthiest part of the world is not in the gold mines, but in the cemetery. Graveyards across the whole world are vast repositories of unfinished growth, unexpressed ideas, unwritten books, unpenned poetry, unreleased potential, and unfulfilled hopes. To explain this point in a straightforward way, he says that they are many people who waste their life with unnecessary pleasures of this world. There are probably many individuals could have been surgeons, engineers, economists, presidents, or prime ministers but they take all these treasures to the grave.
Dr. Myles Munroe worked prodigiously to die empty after having accomplished his purpose. He believed in the power of faith, hope, and love. God does not test you beyond your ability. Myles upheld that our faith is tested on a crucible to gauge how strong we are and to measure its maturity. Untested belief is an invalid faith and can never amount to anything higher. A lot of people in the world are facing tribulations, but with the encouragement of Myles Munroe no one should give in to any setback.
Myles Munroe also preached very edifying lessons about man and wife. He said that man was created in the image and likeness of God. He was created to rule the world and subdue it. It is profoundly sinful when a thinking man practices idol worship contrary to God’s commandments. Women were created by God to be the companion of man and live in love and harmony. The two were given full mandate of the creator to go forward reproducing other creatures like them with responsibility.
Historically Myles Munroe has influenced a large great may people all over the globe. Sadly, this great man is dead, yet his way of life still speaks to and motivates millions of people. As Socrates said to know the good is to do the good. Myles knew the good, and he did it. Additionally, he came to realize the power to succeed comes not from without but from within an individual. Whenever we are discouraged by our haters or our failures in our lives we should continue sojourning on despite the hell we are facing. Let not your background or your failures define you but be defined by the impeccability of your potentiality. Never overcome your obstacles with a reactive mental attitude but conquer them with a proactive mental attitude like the great Dr. Myles Munroe.
Learning how To Debate and not Argue!
All my life I have been the bigoity mouthed arguer never knowing how to debate and as I look at human history I see this as a reoccurring dilemma. When We Debate we maintain a certain level of respect for the others opinion and right to speak. When we argue we attack and degrade the Opinion and right of the other. For Society to begin healing itself I feel we as a whole need to remember and make a better effort when we see ourselves arguing remember to debate! Arguments have led to the senseless loss of life from issues friends would debate and forget seconds later. I pray for cooler heads to prevail and beg forgiveness for my transgressions
Yoruba Religion and Santeria
While there are many deities to be found in African mythology, hundreds even, one of the more fascinating and extensively researched mythologies is that of the Yoruba tribes in West Africa. One of the reasons for this is that the religion and the deities did not stay tethered to West Africa. During the years of slave trading, many West African slaves were sent to Cuba and Haiti. Not wanting to completely abandon their religious beliefs, the slaves associated their gods and goddesses with Christian saints, thereby masking their beliefs from their masters. As a result, the Cuban religion, Santeria, emerged, where these Yoruba gods and goddesses are combined with Christian saints, and they are worshiped as such. Here, we will discuss the Yoruba gods and goddesses, or Orisha, who would become the popular figures in both religions.
Nana-Buluku: In the Yoruba creation myth, Nana-Buluku is a creator god. Sometimes Nana-Buluku was described as being a female, grandmother figure, and in others as a genderless creator god. Nana-Buluku gave birth to twins, Mawu and Lisa, who would control the Earth with their children, the lesser gods. Nana-Buluku also had a pet serpent, called Da, who would carry them where ever they wanted to go. But as Nana-Buluku created the world, they realized that everything they created could not be supported and might tip over. To prevent this, they made Da curl up under the earth by biting its own tail to form a cushion to keep the earth in place. Nana-Buluku created the ocean to keep Da cool, and tasked monkeys to keep it fed with iron bars. Eventually, that iron will run out and Da will become so hungry, it will eat itself until there is nothing left and the earth will tip over.Nana-Buluku, being depicted as the grandmotherly figure of creation.
Obatala: Another creator god is Obatala. Obatala is the son of the sky god, Olorun, who tasked Obatala with creating the world. Obatala found some gods having a party on his way to do this job, and stayed at the party instead, getting incredibly drunk. Obatala's younger brother, Oduduwa, took advantage of this situation, stole Obatala's supplies and created the world himself. Olorun was disappointed in Obatala, and instead decided to give him the job of creating humans. Obatala did this drunk too, hence why humans are so imperfect. Obatala later turned his act around becoming the Great White God, a figure surrounded by a white cloak who encourages purity among people.A statue of Obatala as the Great White God.
Olorun: Olorun, in many regards is the Zeus or Jehovah of the Yoruba pantheon. He is god of the heavens and creator of the world. In reality though, he is more of the planner of the world, as he gave the task of creation to his son Obatala. Eshu is also his personal messenger.
Yemaya: Yemaya is the goddess of childbirth and water. As queen of the oceans and the seas, she is the highest reigning water god in the Yoruba tradition. She was married to Obatala and is considered the mother of gods as Shango is her son. She is also sometimes goddess of the moon.A Cuban dancer dressed as Yamaya, wearing the goddessGods of Nature
Oba: Oba is the goddess of rivers, and sometimes marriage. Oba represents not just the literal rivers, but also the rivers and waters of life. In some stories, she is the wife of the god, Shango, and one of her more prominent myths focuses on this relationship. Oba and Oya were already married to Shango, but Shango loved his mistress, Oshun, more than them. In her jealousy, Oba asks Oshun how she makes Shango so happy. Oshun, jealous that it is Oba's children who will inherit Shango's kingdom, lies and tells Oba that a long time ago, she cut off a piece of her ear and used it as an ingredient in her cooking, making Shango desire her more than that of Oba or Oya. Oba goes home and tries this, but Shango spots the ear in his meal, and thinking she was trying to poison him, drives her away. She came down to Earth and became the Oba river, which crosses the Oshun river, indicating their rivalry.
Oko: Oko is the god of agriculture and fertility. He came to Earth and lived on a small farm, growing some of the most beautiful and delicious fruits and vegetables. One day, he simply vanished, leaving nothing but his staff sticking in the ground. When the people saw this and realized his gift with agriculture, they knew then he must have been a god. The staff later became a phallic symbol, representing fertility, and Oko has a holiday just before the rainy season devoted to him where men are encouraged to be a little more than friendly with the local women.
Osanyin: Osanyin is a lesser god of agriculture, specifically, herbs and small plants. Osanyin is a peculiar looking god, in that he is missing a leg, an arm, and is blind in one eye. He was once given a task by his brother to pull all the weeds from the garden. When his brother returned, he found Osanyin weeping because he could not find any weeds in the garden. All of the plants there had a use, he explained, and therefore, he could not complete his task. He soon passed on his knowledge of all the uses of the plants to the other gods, thus becoming the god of herbs and healing plants.
Olokun: Olokun is the Poseidon of the Yoruba gods, as he is the god of the seas. In some tales, he is the brother of Olorun. Like many mythologies, Olokun factors into a myth about a great flood. One day, humans annoyed Olokun so much, he was prepared to wipe them all out with a flood. Thankfully, this flood never happened as Obatala came down and chained Olokun up before he could do anything.The surviving remains of a statue, depicting Olokun.
Oya: The goddess of storms and strong winds is Oya, one of the wives of Shango. She is also known as a guide to the dead and is the only Orisha who has one foot in the world of the living and one in the world of the dead. She also helps remind the living of the ancestors from which they came. She is also goddess and protector of the marketplace. Oya has had and lost nine children, and she wears nine different colored scarves in memory of them. As the wife of Shango, she once stole his secret of creating lightning and knows he's afraid of the dead.
Shango: Shango is the god of thunder and lightning and uses his drum to create that thunder. He is frequently depicted wearing the double-bladed axe and his favorite colors: red and white. He was well known for his three lovers, Oya, Oba, and Oshun.A dance wand depicting Shango. Note the double axe worn on the top of his head.

The Gud Side
The Gud side a chapter in Kaleidoscopic Theory from Gud's side of Earth's Ourstory life experience.
Gud was born with the learning disabilities Dyslexia and Dysgraphia but was still a hard working young prodigy. Growing up Gud had a lot of responsibility and always did what he was told but was playful. Gud knew he wanted to be Gay but was scared of his Rastafarian Daddy and his Strict Baptist Mum. He also had another issue as he was gay and in love with Luv a blonde boy his same age which incited jealously from many angles so Gud kept to himself and would draw alone but would still help and play with his family . Gud's bad side begins to emerge and he keeps trying to subdue his evil side Olynion his brother only has to say the good or correct thing to do and Gud would try to be a better person. Gud struggles in school and his mother takes the care to keep him educated so that he did fall into the bitter traps of life.
Gud tries his hand at improving himself and talents in various areas while drawing characters of the stories he reads and writes. He studies Christianity with his mother side of the family while learning Rastafarian concepts from his Father. He also studies Greek mythology, Chinese Shaolin principles and martial arts while learning from the world in various ways.
One of the Goals of Kaleidoscopians is to become completely Vegan respecting the lives of our animal friends while helping the animals become the best representation of their species
For over 2000 years Christianity has been misunderstood and taught in the wrong fashion. The Majority Priest, Nuns, Elders, and Teachers of Christianity throughout Our recorded timeline has been with no comprehension of Christ's teachings. Christianity has been used to start wars, win votes, and to secure a marriage. Christ has taught us in the new testament in the parable of the Good Samaritan that regardless of another religious opinion we care and help each other. Christ was one of the world's great Socialist. The modern day christian's follow the Old testament mentality in terms of how they treat others with their lack of respect and outright sabotage of other belief systems to remain in control. Is this a method Christ would use or allow to be used in his name without him reacting as he once did in a certain Church when they lacked the true appreciation. I pray we learn to stop forcing our wants, ways and greedy desires on people. I believe Christ would have accepted LGBT as followers i believe Christ would learn from other religions while showing them equal respect. Who are these things that preach in his name.
An Ode To Mary Rolle Rowan an Exumian Arawak Healing Goddess
The Nightingale Tribute Reading
Nursing is a calling, a lifestyle, a way of living. Nurses here today honor our colleague ________Mary Rolle Rowan_____ who is no longer with us and their life as a nurse. _____Mary__________is not remembered by her Many Dedicated years as a nurse, but by the difference she made during those years by stepping into people's lives, by special moments.
And here is the poem “She Was There,” also for recitation at nurse funerals:
She Was There
When a calming, quiet presence was all that was needed, She was there.
In the excitement and miracle of birth or in the mystery and loss of life, She was there.
When a silent glance could uplift a patient, family member of friend, She was there.
At those times when the unexplainable needed to be explained, She was there.
When the situation demanded a swift foot and sharp mind, She was there.
When a gentle touch, a firm push, or an encouraging word was needed, She was there.
In choosing the best one from a family's “Thank You” box of chocolates, She was there.
To witness humanity,—its beauty, in good times and bad, without judgment, She was there.
To embrace the woes of the world, willingly, and offer hope, She was there.
And now, that it is time to be at the Greater Divinities side, She is there.
___Mary Rolle Rowan________, we honor you this day and present this Aqua rose and light this candle to symbolize our honor and appreciation for being our nurse colleague.
As all PAs know, there is a similar “family” feel among PAs. Most times when I meet someone and find out we're PAs, there's a broad smile and hearty handshake. It would be interesting to create a similar tribute for PAs which could be used at the time of their death.
Most of us want to be remembered as clinicians who put our patients first, and this would be one way to offer recognize the important work that PA's get to do. There is much for PA's to learn from nursing and nurses, and this is yet another inspiring component of the rich nursing traditions.
The flawed Religious Doctrines that dominate life with a lack of comprehension for other Morally Good Opinion Regardless of Religious Historical teaching that the right way is the straight way and the perfect way is the straight way so they for give Rapist but hate Lesbians and Gays do they let us get Raped to Continue to ruin us for the Grandest Most Mighty Religious Perfection of a Direction because they were so Immoral they forgot Left was just as Good and Moral to nothing ever went wrong by going left. How do they even begin to open their Mouths of Jesus Chirst who defended the Woman accused of sin and told them to throw stones if they had not done the same already. Was it not said that someone can find Heaven without having the same religion. Why Should a Divinity of another Color rule another are the Colors more beautiul together in harmony or as the mightest mess of who should dominate all because of what they do. By Kwame Hanna

We should all be continually embarrassed by all who claim to represent Interfaith world peace.
Buddhism is a path of practice and spiritual development leading to Insight into the true nature of reality. Buddhist practices like meditation are means of changing yourself in order to develop the qualities of awareness, kindness, and wisdom. The experience developed within the Buddhist tradition over thousands of years has created an incomparable resource for all those who wish to follow a path — a path which ultimately culminates in Enlightenment or Buddhahood. An enlightened being sees the nature of reality absolutely clearly, just as it is, and lives fully and naturally in accordance with that vision. This is the goal of the Buddhist spiritual life, representing the end of suffering for anyone who attains it.
Hinduism is a diverse system of thought with beliefs spanning monotheism, polytheism, panentheism, pantheism, pandeism, monism, and atheism among others;[web 3] and its concept of God is complex and depends upon each individual and the tradition and philosophy followed. It is sometimes referred to as henotheistic (i.e., involving devotion to a single god while accepting the existence of others), but any such term is an overgeneralization
The foundation of this religion is interaction between human beings and a group of spirits called "Orishas". Each Orisha is associated with particular ideas, objects or natural phenomena. For example the Orisha Shango is associated with thunder and fertility. The Orishas make appearances at religious celebrations through possession trance of Orisha believers. This religion also emphasize continual feeding and supplication to the dieties or Orishas. When one is possessed by an Orisha, one speaks and behaves as though one were that Orisha.
Ancient Greek religion encompasses the collection of beliefs, rituals, and mythology originating in ancient Greece in the form of both popular public religion and cult practices. These groups varied enough for it to be possible to speak of Greek religions or "cults" in the plural, though most of them shared similarities.
Many ancient Greeks recognized the twelve major (Olympian) gods and goddesses (Zeus, Hera, Poseidon, Demeter, Athena, Ares, Aphrodite, Apollo, Artemis, Hephaestus, Hermes, and either Hestia or Dionysus), although philosophies such as Stoicism and some forms of Platonism used language that seems to assume a single transcendent deity. Different cities often worshiped the same deities, sometimes with epithets that distinguished them and specified their local nature.
The religious practices of the Greeks extended beyond mainland Greece, to the islands and coasts of Ionia in Asia Minor, to Magna Graecia(Sicily and southern Italy), and to scattered Greek colonies in the Western Mediterranean, such as Massalia (Marseille). Greek religion was tempered by Etruscan cult and belief to form much of the later ancient Roman religion.
Ancient Egyptian religion was a complex system of polytheistic beliefs and rituals which were an integral part of ancient Egyptian society. It centered on the Egyptians' interaction with a multitude of deities who were believed to be present in, and in control of, the forces and elements of nature. The myths about these gods were meant to explain the origins and behavior of the forces they represented. The practices of Egyptian religion were efforts to provide for the gods and gain their favor.
Norse religion is a folk religion. It was the northern variation of the religion practiced in the lands inhabited by the Germanic tribes across most of Northern and Central Europe prior to Roman and Holy Roman incursions. However, it was not formalized nor categorized as a subset of Germanic paganism until it was described by outsiders who came into contact with native practitioners. Knowledge of Norse religion is mostly drawn from the results of archaeological field work, etymology and early written materials as it was largely a product of early practitioners who did not have a written history.
Christianity[note 1] is an Abrahamic monotheistic religion based on the life, teachings, and miracles of Jesus of Nazareth, known by Christians as the Christ, or "Messiah", who is the focal point of the Christian faiths.
30 In reply Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. 31 A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. 32 So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. 33 But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. 34 He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him. 35 The next day he took out two denarii[c] and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’
A Muslim (Arabic: مُسلِم) is someone who follows or practices Islam, a monotheistic Abrahamic religion. Muslims consider the Quran, their holy book, to be the verbatim word of God as revealed to the Islamic prophet and messenger Muhammad. The majority of Muslims also follow the teachings and practices of Muhammad (sunnah) as recorded in traditional accounts (hadith). "Muslim" is an Arabic word meaning "submitter" (to God).[
Rastafari refer to their beliefs, which are based on a specific interpretation of the Bible, as "Rastalogy". Central is a monotheistic belief in a single God—referred to as Jah—who partially resides within each individual. The former emperor of Ethiopia, Haile Selassie, is given central importance. Many Rastas regard him as an incarnation of Jah on Earth and as the Second Coming of Christ. Others regard him as a human prophet who fully recognized the inner divinity within every individual. Rastafari is Afrocentric and focuses its attention on the African diaspora, which it believes is oppressed within Western society, or "Babylon". Many Rastas call for the resettlement of the African diaspora in either Ethiopia or Africa more widely, referring to this continent as the Promised Land of "Zion". Other interpretations shift focus on to the adoption of an Afrocentric attitude while living outside of Africa. Rastas refer to their practices as "livity". Communal meetings are known as "groundations", and are typified by music, chanting, discussions, and the smoking of cannabis, the latter being regarded as a sacrament with beneficial properties. Rastas place emphasis on what they regard as living 'naturally', adhering to ital dietary requirements, allowing their hair to form into dreadlocks.
"Until the philosophy which holds one race superior and another inferior is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned: That until there are no longer first-class and second class citizens of any nation; That until the color of a man's skin is of no more significance than the color of his eyes; That until the basic human rights are equally guaranteed to all without regard to race; That until that day, the dream of lasting peace and world citizenship and the rule of international morality will remain but a fleeting illusion, to be pursued but never attained." ~ Haile Selassie
"Let us set our goals too high; let us demand more of ourselves than we believe we possess" ~ Haile Selassie
"Many discouraging hours will arise before the rainbow of accomplished goals will appear on the horizon." ~ Haile Selassie

Ron Hubbard, Scientology is a religion that offers a precise path leading to a complete and certain understanding of one’s true spiritual nature and one’s relationship to self, family, groups, Mankind, all life forms, the material universe, the spiritual universe and the Supreme Being.

"A New Kind of Moral Human Being."
By Kwame Hanna
Allowing a lgbt religion to practice and promote its beliefs would benefit the Bahamian society on a global scale and help fulfill the Bahamas' human rights obligations to the United Nations.
From the stories and beliefs of our ancestors to our tumultuous present; Religion is found in most societies around the world. It can be said that Religion may have arose from the spiritual and intellectual needs of human beings. Religion humbles us; as we give praise and worship to a being or group of beings that are higher and more powerful than us. Religion helps to teach us about morals and commitment. Throughout its history religion has been exerting its herculean influence upon economic and political realms of life. Religions have been misused for centuries to implement and enforce the will of Kings, Queens, Zealots and Tyrants. The Black community are now using religion in ways similar to that of the German Nazi regime. The denial of basic human rights are writen in some of the scriptures of these religions. A portion of our society throughout history has been violated by these practices. Allowing a LGBT religion to practice and promote its beliefs would benefit the Bahamian society on a global scale. Thus helping fulfill the Bahamas' human rights obligations to the United Nations.
Religion can be viewed as Universal and it has had and will continue to be a significant institution of Societies small and large. Religion can be considered to be the normative structure of a cohesive and morally just society. A growing segment of the LGBT community have always sought to intertwine our lifestyle with a religious connection. Allowing us to have prayer and worship amongst our own kind and with straight allies in my belief would help promote a morally just LGBT community.
From the knights Templar to the slave trade, to the Nazis and now residing with the pro black movement. The Bible and its theology has been used as a weapon justifying war like actions and behavior. We have come from war like traditions where the conquerors forced their religious beliefs on its enslaved inhabitants. Are we to support tyrannical regimes for the rest of our existence? Or are we going to let peaceful organizations like the United Nations teach us how to live together in-spite of our differences.
Pastoral care helps people come to responsible terms with their life choices. Why should we be denied that right. In David J. Kundtz and Bernard S. Schlager's book a ministry among God's Queer Folk Pastoral care is defined as “the establishment and nurturing of a caring relationship between a minister and their congregation.”
The old adage of whatever you do, whoever you are, just don't talk about it. In my opinion is a damned mentality that can lead to devastating circumstances. We often live and learn by the examples of others. Seeking the best fit for our lives and current situations. If a person does not tell the officer that a murder lives next door is he then responsible for the murders that happen after they realize they live next to a killer? When given a chance to stop an injustice what will you do?
Throughout history religion has been used to demonize the LGBT community. They promote a belief system where they violate the spiritual realm of LGBT people. They inject and perpetuate hatred; condemning the acts or lifestyle of LGBT as sinful. One important point in love amongst the LGBT community is finding a love in spite of our bodies natural limitations. Loving someone in spite of what they have to offer us or what we can gain from them. A love of personality a love for who they are and how they treat you. We currently live in a capitalistic world filled on what have you done for me lately. To create a truly just and equitable society it is paramount that we remember that the lesbian and gay are still your sisters and brothers.
Hetero-sexism is a form of prejudice that promotes a belief that the male- female sexuality is the only natural, normal, or moral sexual behavior. Its effects are the same as having the mentality that White skin color is superior to any other skin color. In the past Prejudice has led to segregation. How did the civil rights movement feel about segregation when it was a black and white issue? The Black lives matter and pro Black regime showed their lack of compassion as they ignored the 50 lives lost in one night and tried to continue to push their agenda with little to no remorse for the Orlando fiasco.
Amnesty International describes Human rights “as basic rights and freedoms that all people are entitled to regardless of nationality, sex, national or ethnic origin, race, religion, language, or other status.” The United Nations General Assembly on the 10th December 1948 proclaimed The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) as a milestone document in the history of human rights. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was drafted by representatives with different legal and cultural backgrounds from all regions of the world. Thus making Human rights universal among all facets of humanity. In Fulfilling its obligations to the United Nations the Bahamas would empower a global organization which aims to promote peace in the world.
Google search describes Equality as the state of being equal, especially in status, rights, or opportunities. As the world becomes global we must avoid the erroneous mentality where by we make people conform or make them extinct. We share a world and diversity adds to the spice of life. It is paramount that we learn to co exist for a truly equitable society. LGBT marriage and parental rights are a must in a truly equitable society. If these current countries will not allow it then we must form a country and society of our own accord. Life is a beautiful gift why can't we all share in it as we truly are?

A prayer for the Existance of Heaven
We are weak and we have sinned
We yearn for Equality, love, and Peace
We want to walk a path
towards love, compassion, justice, kindness.
We pray to the Divine Council
We ask to learn to care for others
beyond our own circle,
Praying for an expansion
of the edges of that circle.
So that Hatred, Racism and Ignorance
never follow us home
may that Circle guide us
to a path to heaven
May Judgment treat us fairly
May love guide us home
Gibbons are the nearest relatives to humans that mate for life. They live in small, stable family groups with a monogamous mated pair and offspring under the age of 7. Gibbon families are territorial and defend their territory with morning songs sung by the breeding pair.
a pair bond is the strong affinity that develops in some species between a pair consisting of a male and female, or in some cases as a same-sex pairing, potentially leading to producing offspring and/or a lifelong bond. Pair-bonding is a term coined in the 1940s that is frequently used in sociobiology and evolutionary biology circles. The term often implies either a lifelong socially monogamous relationship or a stage of mating interaction in socially monogamous species. It is sometimes used in reference to human relationships.

A Saint of Our own
It is of my opinion that General Harvey Milk should be viewed as a Saint to the LGBT community, he fought for our rights and died standing up for them.
Arawak Animal Spirits Guides
What is Animal Spirit? An Animal Spirit is strongly associated with the Native American Indian belief in Animism that is a belief based on the spiritual idea that the universe, and all natural objects within the universe, have souls or spirits. An animal spirit is believed to be a supernatural power that embodies, attaches or conveys influence empowering a person with the trait of the animal. The animal spirit is also regarded as a guide who might appear in dreams in the form of an animal. An animal spirit, or spirit guide, walks through life with a person, teaching and guiding them, and in some instances protecting them.
All my life I had been confused unsure of myself and who I wanted to be with. I handled it badly trying to stay by myself and treated people poorly to keep them away from a committed relationship. In college I fell in love with two women but after each break up I would explore my gay side. I got tested regularly but took some chances that terrorize the mind, ain nothing like a clean bill of health after lustful impatience. There are a lot of sexually transmitted diseases in today's world and safe sex is most definitely the way to go. Patience and a thorough understanding of the sexual act you are about to undertake is the best way to go. For you and your sexual partners sake. As I age I find myself understanding that I am gay and I had to stop hiding and pretending. It has made me come to terms with who I am. The last five years I have abstained from sexual activity. The journey has been hard and miserable but I felt better as I began to look for a more meaningful relationship. The time away from sex allowed me to reconnect with the spiritual and to seek moral guidance. As I searched from Religion to Religion I realized I respect their beliefs but I refused to allow them to make me be alone or with someone I did not love. After the Orlando night club massacre I was devastated by the straight communities reaction and I realized they were no longer the company I wanted to keep. I was able to Connect with several LGBT members in the Bahamas and they have given me strength through their friendship. I later would find a Great organization that promotes love https://www.facebook.com/groups/1599644667031053/ . Working through the assignments lead me to attempt to build a Theoretical Spiritual belief system, that I believed would help people like me who have accepted who they LGBT but still want to be morally and spiritually sound. To get married and celebrate our love as it should be. A recognized love agreement between two individuals. Kaleidoscopic Theory is the name of the moral and spiritual system that I am attempting to build.

A call for Religious tolerance in schools
In the Bahamas religion is used to discriminate in the work force and in education. As we move forward there is a need for inclusion as to ensure that all of our youth receive the benefits of the educational resources available. You would assume that these schools were teaching information created solely by Christians, this is far from the case.While it is this writer’s humble opinion that there should possibly be a sort of bar mitzvah or age moratorium as to when Rastafarians allow their children to partake in their religious sacrament. There is no reason that their children should not be allowed to grow their locks while receiving a proper education. From my experience in life Rastafarian’s are some of the most humble people and our society would benefit with their development. Limiting the growth and development of one of our youth stifles the whole tribe. Certain religions and the rights of some to not adhere to religious principals should not dictate whether or not our children are taught at the highest standards. We live in a world with multiple religions and numerous forms of spirituality and philosophical stances. Arriving at a point where there is tolerance and respect for another’s belief is the only sane way forward. You cannot force a person to believe what they simply DO NOT WANT TO. Allowing religious freedoms/ tolerance in schools would go a long way to decrease a lot of the bigotry and bullying that goes on in our schools today. Together we live, grow, and learn better.
In My Opinion Jesus Christ Was an Interfaith Messiah not bound by the Doctrine's of One Religion but trying to teach Peace and Unity despite all Our differences.
