  1. From Porn to God! (POWERFUL Testimony of God's Love and Protection!) - Shelley Lubben Shelley Lubben (born May 18, 1968) is an American author, singer, motivational speaker, and former pornographic actress. After she left the adult industry, Lubben became a born-again Christian and anti-pornography activist. As of 2012, she is the Executive Director of the Pink Cross Foundation, which reaches out to women and men in pornography and speaks in public forums, sharing about the hazardous working conditions that she experienced in the porn industry. In January 2015, she closed the Pink Cross Foundation. She is also an ordained Chaplain with the Order of Saint Martin with a degree in Theological studies. Lubben was born on May 18, 1968 in Pasadena, California. In an interview with Howard Stern and Deseret News, Lubben stated that when she was nine years old, a brother and sister sexually abused her. Lubben worked as a prostitute from age 18 to 26. During this time, she became pregnant by one of her customers, and later gave birth to a daughter. She entered the adult film industry, while working as a prostitute, when she was 24 years old. During her time in the adult industry, she contracted herpes and HPV, which led to cervical cancer, and resulted in the removal of half her cervix. During and after her life in the adult industry, she battled alcohol and drug addictions. In 2005, Lubben initiated an aggressive online marketing campaign, utilizing social networking web sites in order to reach out to the adult industry. In 2008, Lubben established a faith-based organization called the Pink Cross Foundation. The group concentrates on outreach to and evangelism of those in the porn industry, especially performers, and offers support to those wishing to leave the industry. The organization solicits donations online and offers an online support forum for individuals that are addicted to drugs, fornication, and pornography. When Lubben identifies interested individuals, she sends care packages filled with Godly literature, Bibles, Christian music, local grocery and department store gift cards, and other spiritual and practical supports. A secondary focus of Pink Cross is outreach to individuals seeking recovery from pornography addiction. Pink Cross attends pornography conventions to educate fans about how porn is not glamorous and also reaching out to porn stars and reminding them that they have options. The Pink Cross Foundation also lobbies against pornography and the adult entertainment industry. Lubben supported California legislator Charles Calderon in his effort to tax the pornographic industry by speaking to lawmakers about her experiences. Lubben describes the scene of a hardcore porn film as devoid of intimacy, and describes it as "all mechanical and beastly". She further writes that "women are vomiting off the set, and most of the actors are doing drugs and alcohol." In June 2010, she spoke to U.S. House and Senate members and their staffs in Washington DC about the damage that was done to her body from her time in the porn industry. She continues to be outspoken regarding the illegal and hazardous working conditions in the industry, with sexually transmitted diseases being a workplace safety issue and public health concern. Lubben has appeared in various international media outlets, including radio, television, and film. An overview of her life has been featured in the documentaries Traffic Control and Out of the Darkness, the latter of which was selected to be the opening film for the John Paul II Film Festival in 2011. In January 2011, Lubben released a rap/hip hop album with the proceeds going to the Pink Cross Foundation to help women and men recover from porn. The first single, titled "Killer Fantasy", features the message of a porn star speaking to the porn fan about the truth behind the adult industry.
  2. A Guaranteed Basic Income (GBI) of $583 might work in the U.S.A.? Here’s a summary of how this would work from this second article from Business Insider in 2013. Which by the way, initially seems a lot more plausible that the $1000 a month article I linked earlier this week. 1. Settle on a monthly benefit. This 2nd Business Insider article initially proposes $583 a month guaranteed basic income for all Americans. 2. Not universal or for all citizens. But not so fast! The “rich” (anyone making over $60,000 a year) are excluded from this guaranteed income so it’s not universal. So this is essentially a tax on the “rich” and indeed a redistribution proposal. The math is a little fuzzy here. They proposed $500 in one paragraph but $583 is the number used in the example. Benefits are reduced by $233 a year for each $1,000 rise in income over $30,000 a year. The article proposes that someone earning $45,000 would receive a guaranteed basic income of $3500 yearly or $291.67 a month. Anyone earning more than $60,000 a year receives nothing. I did the math myself and this would likely cost about $700 Billion based on a articles I read from Think Progress and this US Census source for 2014 Population, % of Population under 18, % of Population over 65. Here's a breakdown: $30,000 yearly household income would see a GBI benefit of $6,996.00 yearly. Plus $1500 yearly per child. $31,000 yearly household income would see a GBI benefit of $6,763.00 yearly. Plus $1500 yearly per child. $32,000 yearly household income would see a GBI benefit of $6,530.00 yearly. Plus $1500 yearly per child. ... $40,000 yearly household income would see a GBI benefit of $4,666.00 yearly. Plus $1500 yearly per child. ... $45,000 yearly household income would see a GBI benefit of $3,501.00 yearly. Plus $1500 yearly per child. ... $50,000 yearly household income would see a GBI benefit of $2,336.00 yearly. Plus $1500 yearly per child. ... $55,000 yearly household income would see a GBI benefit of $1,171.00 yearly. Plus $1500 yearly per child. ... $65,000 yearly household income would see a GBI benefit of $0.00 yearly. Plus $1500 yearly per child. 3. Adults with children receive an additional benefit. All parents would receive$1500 yearly or $125 monthly per child. I personally think there probably would need to be some sort of maximum benefits for say 4 or 5 children. Assume about 54.2 million children so $81.4 Billion. 4. Seniors (over 65) do not receive this basic income. The argument is senior citizens have social security with an average monthly benefit of $1,3000. I think senior citizens are a huge voting block and would likely never go for this if they were excluded. How to pay for this? From the article. In parenthesis my thoughts. It would potentially eliminate a lot of jobs. It would potentially create a lot of jobs. It would allow those with lower income to use the money where they needed it. What do you think?
  3. I have 3 questions: I. What is the role of Parent’s Authority in relation to a Christian? II. To under-age children? III. To adult children? The following is what I am concerned about… Thoughts?
