Gay Rights? or Gay Dominance?
Rev. Father Maximiadis
The 'Gay Liberation Front' (GLF) believed that heterosexuality needed to be demolished and reconstructed to accommodate homosexuality into social acceptance. The 'Gay Liberation Front' achieved this by blurring the boundaries between the traditional biological family (who it believes is an anachronistic cultural residue from centuries past) and the preferred homosexual and lesbian cohabitants. The top of its agenda included unbridled sexual liberation... Read more:

I was inspired to write 'William Kamm the Fragmented Pebble' when I read “a WOLF among the SHEEP”, a biography of Australian cult leader William Kamm (alias The Little Pebble). I had wanted to learn more about the self-styled ecclesiastical leader, millionaire, would-be “pope,” “prophet,” and convicted child sex offender. Kamm was reported in the media approximately fifty-seven times (q.v.) during the years leading up to his incarceration in 2005. The synoptic coverage left a false preconception that all had been reported, and the story had ended.

In popular parlance, it is believed that the origins of the Great War (1914-18) ensued from the controversial assassination, at Sarajevo (Сарајево); on 28 June 1914 (v.i.). Archduke Franz Ferdinand von Österreich-Este of Austria, and his morganatic wife Sophie (née Chotkova), the Duchess of Hohenberg (Herzogin von Hohenberg); were assassinated by young Bosnians. Young Bosnians dedicated to liberating their homeland from the Austro-Hungarian rule. The assassination was the catalyst that acted like a desperate fuel to a series of volatile issues. For example, national rivalry, colonial and commercial disputes, amidst the tangled politics of continental Europe; that had been brewing up for a very long time leading up to the 20-century. Behind the façade of idealism and a determined esprit de corps lied lust for conquest; and forceful acquisition from the vanquished. Moreover, the destruction of cultural identities, divisions of nation states; and booty among the victors.
This thesis includes many centuries of broad-brush strokes in the historic landscape in the Mecca to Sarajevo timeline. These form a continuum of wars feeding off each other that constituted a far larger picture beyond the single brushstroke of that June attentat.
