Dear Matthew (and Suzy),
We write this letter out of grave concern about many highly questionable statements posted at: Messages from MATTHEW.
The following discussion addresses only the content which you have published your website:
Please be aware that we mean no disrespect with this open letter. Over the years many of us have read in disbelief some of your more consequential pronouncements that failed to resonate. Some of them even smacked of purposeful disinformation, which we sincerely hope was not the case.
It’s quite important to understand that this exposition does not come from any particular ideology, ism, spiritual background, religious perspective, philosophical mindset, cultural bias, national loyalty, sexual orientation, or political persuasion. You might ask: How can this be so? Please read on.
Before we open the discussion about your support of all things concerning Barack Obama, let it be known that we have no political party affiliation. We are not registered to vote. We have NO dog in that fight. Our true understanding is that the two major political parties in the USA simply represent two extremely deceptive sides of the very same counterfeit coin.
With that said, here is the first quote from your post at the “Messages” site which we have been compelled to address since the day that it first appeared:
Many of us peace activists and anti-war advocates have watched in horror as Barack Obama escalated the US policy around the utilization of drones in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen and Somalia.
In all of these instances hundreds of innocents have been instantly slaughtered and then labeled collateral damage by the Obama Administration. Young children, women, old men have been blown to smithereens because of being in the wrong place at the wrong time … and you attempt to justify this. For the sake of defending a Nobel Peace Prize winning president who had done nothing to deserve the award?!
Of course, we haven’t even addressed the complete lack of due process inherent in this barbaric war policy. No indictment or discovery, no trial or evidence, no judge or jury, no defense attorney or defense, no prosecutor or government prosecution, no verdict. Just a summary, unilateral and despotic death sentence!
And a sentence, mind you, of the most cruel and inhumane form of capital punishment. How do you spell T Y R A N T?
In legal parlance we call this an extrajudicial killing ordered by the President of the United States of America based on what???
CIA-concocted evidence? NSA-generated evidence? DIA-fabricated evidence? FBI-contrived evidence?
Matthew, how could you ever justify such a morally reprehensible state-directed policy?
How could you ever sanction such murderous and heinous state-sponsored terrorism being conducted in the name of the American people?!
And, all the while, using our tax dollars to perpetrate these outright assassinations.
Your four paragraphs above defy reason. They defy generally accepted standards of universal ethics. They defy common law, common sense, and the common good. They defy any modicum of sanity and, in fact, they reveal one who has turned a deaf ear to the voice of reason.
Perhaps we have now made ourselves (too) perfectly clear in this regard. But, as you know, the point had to be made for all of those who might buy into your shockingly distorted narrative.
By the way, Suzy, how would you feel if you were sitting at your dinner table one evening and the house next door was instantly vaporized by a missile. And your family was also blown to bits because … … … you all just happened to be collateral damage.
Do you still support the Drone Ranger and his drone warfare policy being inflicted on nations that the US Congress and American people haven’t even declared war on?
Your comments shown above are completely indefensible and we would request that you retract them. Thank you!
The War In Syria
Next let’s talk about your comments about Syria, as well as your eery silence concerning the recent developments there.
Syria, you say, is about disparate groups battling the Assad Regime.
Syria was at peace before the Western powers fomented war there.
Assad was highly regarded for his protection of all the religious minorities, not just of his own mystical sect of Islam known as the Alawites*
*”The Alawites, also known as Alawis (ʿAlawīyyah Arabic: علوية) are a prominent mystical religious group centred in Syria who follow a branch of the Twelver school of Shia Islam.”
What you also fail to mention is that many of the rebel opposition fighters are mercenaries transported and paid for by the same powers. Obviously you must know that. Who doesn’t know that this entire falsely-portrayed civil war is actually just another war for natural resources, especially water rights, oil and gas reserves, and transit rights.
So, how do we go from that very mundane greed-based reality to your casual explanation that has absolutely no basis in reality?!
That your hero Barack Obama would so aggressively plead his case to the American people, and world-at-large, advocating a military attack on a broken and war-weary nation is totally unacceptable. Especially when that nation’s government was innocent of the alleged provocation. Who doesn’t know that the sarin gas attack outside of Damascus was a stone cold false flag operation perpetrated as a deliberate provocation? How else to bring a rain of American missiles and flock of French fighter jets onto the battlefield of Syria in favor of who?
Again, your outright misrepresentations about the Syrian war and Obama’s response are as shocking as they are repugnant.
NSA and the Monsanto Protection Act
What’s up next? Your characterizations about Obama’s involvement with the NSA scandal or your defense of his signing the Monsanto Protection Act?
Matthew, Suzy, at the end of the day it appears that you can justify anything Obama does or says, regardless of the extraordinary and destructive consequences of his presidential decisions. Isn’t that what you have done from the very beginning of his highly divisive and destructive term in office?
Here’s a politician, who has yet to produce a real birth certificate to qualify for the office, who also grew up in the seediest urban politics in America — Chicago. Who, then, goes on to appoint the most corrupt cast of characters to his cabinet and other key positions all under the guise of “hope and change”. No matter how you dissect his entire administration and its actions, one comes up with the very same conclusion — U N T R U S T W O R T H Y to an extreme!
And yet you continue to sing his praises?! How can we not wonder who you really work for. Quite honestly, we’d like to know who feeds you all of this stuff. Which you then pass off as coming from the higher spirit realm. Not good … not good at all.
May we remind you that false prophets never have a good ending.
The Worldwide LGBT Political Agenda
Here’s one that really caused us to question your understanding and even wonder if there is a hidden agenda behind your site.
This is the particular statement that really rankles as it stunningly misleads:
“Eventually everyone will know that homosexuality is an advanced stage of spiritual growth wherein feminine and masculine energies are more balanced than in heterosexual persons.”
We assume that you meant to write that it is not homosexuality that is a sign of the spiritually evolved; rather, it is dispassionate androgyny or asexuality that is often the sign of great spiritual attainment. After all, it is quite well known that the saints and siddhas of the East have completely surrendered their sexual urges in order to attain Self-realization. Likewise, many of the Christian mystics were known to have transmuted their lustful thoughts and emotions into feelings of love for God. Witness the Desert Fathers, St. Francis and St.Clare, St. Theresa of Avila and St. John of the Cross to name but a few.
In fact every religious tradition speaks of a time in the spiritual journey of both man and woman when they are called to sublimate the most powerful sexual forces in their being (aka the practice of Brahmacharya). It is only within this spiritual context of sadhana that the highest states of consciousness can be experienced, particularly for sustained periods of time … like for all of eternity.
Nevertheless, your comments fly right in the face of the incredibly powerful and pervasive LGBT agenda that is literally sweeping across the globe. That agenda is at once coercive, mean-spirited, bullying, uncompromising, fear-based and operates on raw political power.
“We will not give you aid if you don’t embrace homosexuality …”
— African leader describing Obama’s foreign aid criteria in the Washington Post
Truly, no one has ever seen such a political juggernaut roll across the land with such impunity and purpose. Even Putin has been intimidated by this unrivaled steamroller of a political machine that ALWAYS gets its way … in the end.
Is this your idea of building tolerance? Is this your idea of winning the hearts and minds of the people toward willing acceptance of a particular sexual orientation. Is gay marriage your understanding of adherence to natural order and reverence of sacred scripture and respect of time-tested ancient traditions?
Matthew and Suzy, have you ever heard of Sodom and Gommorah? Do you know the true health consequences of sodomy?
Check them out — for your sake as well as ours, please.
Would you want to be raised by two gay parents who foisted their sexuality on you? We are all for civil unions, btw, but marriage was a HUGE stretch with tremendous consequences to the society that embraces it.
Back to the point, homosexuality is frequently practiced by those who are in pursuit of intensified sexual activity and the physical gratification that goes along with it. Those who find themselves in this phase of existence are prone to (just as heterosexuals often do) wasting their sexual fluids, not conserving them as a true spiritual aspirant is admonished to do.
That’s not to say that heterosexuals are more spiritually inclined or advanced than homosexuals. They can be on par with each other in this regard, and often are.
The way the LGBT agenda is currently being played out across the planet is that it has been co-opted by those in power who seek to set the heteros against the homos, and vice versa. It is also an agenda that is fundamentally divisive and contrary to building a peaceful and harmonious society.
Surely you saw that the Boy Scouts of America was completely taken over – in a day and a night – by this political movement. The foisting of so many sexual deviations and social extremes upon America represent a well planned scheme to thoroughly destroy the nuclear family and, with it, our once family-based society.
It appears that you have contributed mightily to their cause, but we await your response.
Let’s get back to your ongoing cause celebre.
Barack Hussein Obama
To even suggest that Barack Obama is what you say he is, in light of the preponderance of evidence to the contrary, speaks of a hidden agenda which seems to have revealed itself. We bear no ill will against Barack Hussein Obama. We only wish him well on his own path back to the Godhead. However, his path has now gotten inextricably entangled with our paths. Just as Obamacare is currently putting small businesses out of business around the country and wars are being started in our name in Syria.
Did you know that, as the Senator from Illinois, Obama backed the most permissive and cruel abortion policies (to the unborn baby) ever legislated in this country? Look up his record in this regard and you will see someone who does not protect the most powerless and defenseless among us.
Didn’t the Philadelphia abortion scandal show the country that laws needed to be tightened up for the protection of the unborn left to die, or killed, on the operating table? His blatant disrespect of the Catholic hospitals throughout the nation in this regard reflects an individual without a moral compass.
Therefore, it is imperative, it is an existential necessity, that we understand as a people, as a society, as a nation, as a citizenry, as an electorate, who this leader really is, and what he is really all about.
Does he walk his talk? Or, is he the proverbial wolf in sheep’s clothing.
Is he an agent of real hope and change? Or, is he the ultimate Manchurian Candidate with a profoundly nefarious agenda?
May we say that it truly pains us to have written these words of constructive criticism.
That’s not the way it’s supposed to be.
As one of the planetary prophets, it is you (two) who are supposed to warn and advise, cajole and counsel us in matters both mundane and spiritual.
We’re very sorry to say that you have lost our trust.
And, there doesn’t seem to be much you can do to reclaim it, as long as you continue down the same road of so many dubious and unreliable assertions.
With utmost sincerity,
