Groundswell Against Sexual Assault: Photo Links

Project Unbreakable: from victim to victor
2012-03-13, Sydney Morning Herald (One of Australia's leading newspapers)
Posted: 2013-10-29 08:46:01
http://www.smh.com.au/lifestyle/life/project-unbreakable-from-victim-to-victo...

Grace Brown was sick of hearing about sexual assault. Having spoken with so many survivors over the years, she grew increasingly frustrated by her inability to help. Then, one night last October, another friend confessed that she too had been abused and it turned out to be the final straw. Brown went to bed determined to act and in the morning Project Unbreakable was born. The project uses photography to help survivors of sexual assault take back the power of the words used against them by their attacker/s and aid in the healing process. Participants write these phrases on a piece of cardboard and Brown, a 19-year-old freshman at The School of Visual Arts in New York City, takes their picture and uploads it on the project's website. Just as powerful are the images she creates. Amassing a tremendous amount of followers from around the world in just five short months, women and men as far as Australia, Europe and the Middle East have submitted their own photos to the site. What's especially striking is the number of people willing to show their faces, essentially outing themselves as survivors of sexual assault. "In the beginning most people didn't show their faces. It wasn't until maybe a month in. People are getting braver and it's been really amazing to watch it grow." Taking part in the project doesn't resolve the problem but it enables the healing to begin. For some, knowing they're not alone or confiding in someone can help kick-start the process and exposing the words used against you can release the hold that they have.

Why Muslims Should Not Hate Christians

Muslims actually claim to be followers of Jesus and so do Christians, even though neither word was used much if at all in the Christian Bible.

The Quran says the Christian and Jewish bibles are God's word but that they have been corrupted. That's obviously true. The word for Hell was not originally in either of them. What was meant was death, the grave etc, not a place of eternal torment.

The Quran says Christians wrongly worship Jesus instead of the Creator. That's true of most Christians, but not all. The Christian bible actually says Jesus is our example or role model, whom we're supposed to be like, loving everyone. Muslims believe Jesus is savior, but not God, and that's correct. Jesus is a limited being, while God is unlimited. The bible never says Jesus is or was the Creator, which is God the Father. It says he is or was the Son of God, which obviously means, because he was "sinless" and loved everyone, he was like God in that respect.

The Christian religion was faithful to Jesus' teachings for about 300 years, until the Roman Empire corrupted it by turning it into a more pagan religion. It was a better pagan religion than what existed before, but it was worse than original Christianity.

Islam was somewhat faithful to the Quran's teachings for about 200 years, when it was corrupted by false Hadiths.

Zionists who want to restore a greater nation of Israel seem to be major players in manipulating Muslims and Christians to fight against each other. But all three religions should unify, instead of seeking to destroy each other. The early Christian religion was simply restoring the original meaning of the Jewish bible. The Jews had succumbed to some pagan beliefs during the Babylonian captivity.

It's possible that Brahmanism and Buddhism were founded by Abrahamites too.
