Stephen Lawrence’s murder was covered up by Freemasons in the Metropolitan Police?

June 27, 2023 /Crime/ — The Metropolitan Police is not run by Freemasons. Freemasonry is a fraternal organization that is open to men of all faiths and backgrounds.

How many members of America’s political elite are direct descendants of people who were slaveholders?

June 26, 2023 /Politics/ — According to a 2023 report by Reuters, at least 100 members of the 117th United States Congress are direct descendants of people who were slaveholders. This includes 28 members of the Senate and 72 members of the House of Representatives.

The report found that the descendants of slaveholders are disproportionately represented in Congress, making up about 20% of the body despite comprising only about 1% of the overall population.

June 27, 2023 /Lifestyle/ — Samson’s hair was a symbol of his Nazarite vow, which was a special religious commitment that he made to God. As a Nazarite, Samson was forbidden from cutting his hair, drinking alcohol, or coming into contact with dead bodies. These restrictions were intended to set him apart from other people and to symbolize his dedication to God.
