Info on Podcast # 105

by Peter B. Collins on March 3, 2010

Roots of CIA torture and mind control tactics; Gary Chew reviews The Ghost Writer. Dr. Jeffrey Kaye, a psychologist, and author H. P. Albarelli, Jr. talk about the upcoming trial of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed–who we know was tortured–and the history of CIA torture and mind control programs, including the infamous Project MK-Ultra and the use of LSD. We talk about an article they wrote for Truthout.org, available here. Kaye is a longtime critic of Bush-era policies of rendition and torture, and Albarelli’s powerful new book exposes the history back to the early 1950′s A Terrible Mistake: The Murder of Frank Olson and the CIA’s Secret Cold War Experiments. Albarelli’s book is chilling and fascinating, and shows that the US has been operating on “the dark side”, as Cheney called it, for decades. He describes the importance of the Olson case, and the large numbers of people–including children–who were slipped LSD by the CIA. Gary Chew reviews Roman Polanski’s new film, about a British ex-Prime Minister accused of torture, The Ghost Writer

Good morning, Peter.

I just heard your podcast 105 and also watched the interview with Marc Thiessen on Eternal Word Television Network.

As one raised in the Roman Catholic tradition, I have become aware of some of the history of the church and have come to the belief that Jesus, the Christ, couldn’t be accepted by Constantine because of his anarchistic teachings.

I believe that Constantine encouraged the church to accept the belief that Jesus was God in order to keep Roman Cathoics/Christians from believing that Jesus expected his followers to follow him.

By making Jesus appear to be God and a sacrifice, Constantine has made being Christians to accept the execution of Jesus as an act of sacrifice that God was pleased with instead of admitting that Rome did not make mistakes in judicial matters.

As I see it, Jesus could not have taught his followers better what he was about if he was not able to love his enemies and forgive them if he had not been executed.

If Jesus was God, accepting his death, praying for his persecutors and asking God to forgive them would not have meant anything to his followers.

I am not encouraging passivism for Christians. I believe that the government, and even the church needs to be held to the task of being truthful.

Well that is all I have to say on this subject.

Peace!

Rey Hinckley
