September 24, 2017, 10:45:16 pm Psalm 51:17 says: The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the league rulebook. It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

Aluminum is a known neurotoxin that destroys cellular metabolism and function. Hundreds of studies link to the ravaging effects of aluminum. The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

Russia bans Church of Scientology for 'not being a religion'

CONTROVERSIAL religion the Church of Scientology was today facing a major blow after a branch was banned following a surprise court ruling.

Moscow City Court banned the local branch of the group amid claims from the Russian Justice Ministry that it failed to comply with federal laws on freedom of religion.

That came after the group tried to register Scientology as a trademark owned by the US Religious Technology Center.

A Ministry of Justice spokesman said: "The representatives of the Church of Scientology have created many legal conflicts by themselves by restricting the religious freedom through the use of trade marks."

The ruling does not affect the practice of Scientology anywhere else in the world.

It is considered a religion in a number of countries and has eight million members across the globe.

Moscow's Church of Scientology branch was registered 21 years ago in 1994.

Only four years ago, in 2011, it opened plush headquarters in the city a mile away from Red Square.

The court said the church has to set up a commission to liquidate the organisation within six months.

Scientology lawyers are considering their position.

They argue the church had "violated no bans", and no real reasons to justify the liquidation had been made out.

The church also argues the decision "violates the rights of tens of thousands of believers."

Scientology was founded by American science fiction author L Ron Hubbard in the 1950s.

Followers include Hollywood A listers Tom Cruise, John Travolta and Juliette Lewis.

The church uses an e-meter device, an instrument used to measure a number of things, including the amount of "body thetans" in an individual.

According to the church these are the souls of aliens brought to planet Earth 75 million years ago.
