It is always such a lively and insightful exchange when these two meet. Just remember, the wall brought the fall of the USSR in Europe, Perestroika was a good thing!

Arnon Rafael Louiv on the Holiness Source – the Book of Leviticus – and Bible quotes on Twitter by Senator Marco Rubio and the creator of controversies – President Donald Trump…

December 30, 2018 at 18:53 | Posted in Articles by Arnon Louiv | Leave a comment

I can not stop thinking about so many distortions of the truth being preached out there this past year in the market of ideas. How can people still be so fooled by words (in this age of social media worldwide access?), words from those whom the Apostle Paul warned us about: “stay away from ignorant and stupid people who create controversies”, but we can’t stay away, sorry Paul.

As the end of another year 2018 approaches on our Christian Era calendar and 2019 is knocking on our doors, we must be ready to defend our faith on morals and values, like the Apostle Peter suggested, for we are all sinners.

Americans are indeed a nation of immigrants (me included) and the nation of a Constitution that we must uphold because it is the law of the land.

Senator Marco Rubio has been quoting a lot of Bible verses on his Twitter account, which is awesome, however, I wish he would also quote specific verses from the Bible to remind the President of the United States that we are a nation of immigrants and of the Bill of Rights.

And I am not just blurting out words here because of the late great John F. Kennedy who wrote the book  ‘A Nation of Immigrants’. I am writing about this because I have been disturbed about how many Americans are mistreating immigrants and people who do not think like themselves. That is all UNAMERICAN.

anationofImmigrantsThe other day I was having this heated debate with a friend, who is also a fellow Republican, and who likes to label me as a ‘centrist’. Finally, when I realized I could not convince him of the whole truth and because he kept pressing on me that only one worldview was the right one, his worldview or that of Donald Trump, I asked him bluntly: what does the First Amendment say? His answer shocked me: “I don’t know, what does it say?” He quipped. That is when I thought of the Apostle Paul’s words about ignorant people creating stupid controversies without the proper knowledge and wisdom. But, gently, I educated him on the First Amendment and I also gave him a Bible as a gift. I asked humbly that he read the Bible by himself.

Here is THE FIRST AMENDMENT OF THE U.S. CONSTITUTION and I should proudly add: we must be always willing to die to defend this most sacred right.

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

And regarding Senator Marco Rubio`s Bible quotes, I wish he would write the following quotes from the Book of Leviticus to remind President Donald Trump where the Bible stands on immigrants.

Book of Leviticus 19:33 “When an alien resides with you in your land, you shall not oppress the alien.” 19:34  “The alien who resides with you shall be to you as the citizen among you; you shall love the alien as yourself, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.”

Of course, the Bible is talking about law-abiding aliens and that is obvious to all of us who know the whole truth. There is no room for discrimination in the Bible; children should not be dying under our custody if it was for lack of proper attention and medical care.

I took a Baptist history class at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (a very conservative seminary) in Fort Worth, Texas, and the heated debate was about Christians and our Founding Fathers being slave owners. How could that be?

The truth is that there are verses in the Bible that truly carry the weight of life or death, some can be open for various exegesis; others were written for instructions for a passing generation. But verses like the ones I quoted above remain true forever, and they were not written for one passing generation. If you don`t believe me ask yourself: why do Jews and Christians observe the Passover to this day?

Arnon Louiv on Representative Mia Love`s loss in Utah congressional district and Donald Trump…

November 28, 2018 at 15:01 | Posted in Articles by Arnon Louiv | Leave a comment

“Good news is, I’m not going away. But now, I am unleashed, I am untethered and I am unshackled, and I can say exactly what’s on my mind.”

Those are the exact words of outgoing U.S. Representative Mia Love from the state of Utah. She recently lost her re-election bid to Ben McAdams in their Utah congressional race. Love, who has represented the district since 2015, had been locked in a close race with McAdams, the mayor of Salt Lake County, but eventually lost the race by a few hundred votes.

Ironically, the day after the midterm elections, President Donald Trump openly criticized Love and prematurely declared her defeat. “Mia Love gave me no love and she lost,” Trump said. “Too bad. Sorry about that, Mia.”

Later though, as the tally of votes were still being counted, Mia Love took the lead and came close to winning the race in the final tally only to lose by less than one percent to McAdams.

Most ironic of all this falling out between the President of the United States and one of his own Republican Representatives is the fact that Mia Love is now saying that she feels emboldened by the defeat and free from the shackles, apparently imposed on her by Donald Trump. What did she mean?

Well, what we know for sure is what she said during the concession speech: Republican Rep. Mia Love sharply criticized President Donald Trump during a concession speech on Monday, saying Trump’s vision of the world is “no real relationships, just convenient transactions.”

Welcome to the real world Love and thanks for not being politically correct!

Arnon Rafael Louiv on Guns in God`s House of Worship…

October 29, 2018 at 21:35 | Posted in Articles by Arnon Louiv | Leave a comment

This past week has been such a tough week to live through it. It has not been easy for me in many ways and I am sure it has not been for many of you.

And now we have seen President Donald Trump telling rabbis, priests and pastors to arm themselves in church following the horrible shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh.

I encourage many of you to read the article by John Bloom of CNN Online regarding the justification to arm ourselves to go to synagogues, temples, churches and other houses of worship. But, let me say this in the strongest possible way I can say with words: that it is NOT biblically sound to justify carrying a weapon out of fear when going to church. After all, who is our God that we might fear fear of being dead by lunatics in His House of Worship? Isn`t your God in control of all things? Who is your God?

The coming of Jesus Christ, first of all, is stamped with two profound and powerful words: FEAR NOT! Let me give you a few examples: when God is your refuge and resource you have nothing to fear! That is written in Psalms 46. What was the first word that Gabriel (the Angel) said to that teenager, a Jewish virgin maiden Mary when He showed up in her house in Nazareth? He said: FEAR NOT! Remember when Jesus`s disciples were on a ship in the Sea of Galilee and a powerful storm had just brewed out of nowhere, then suddenly the disciples saw Jesus calmly walking on the waters toward them, they were all afraid and I would be too, thinking that I was seeing a ghost, and what did Jesus say to them and to us today? FEAR NOT!

Finally, around 70 years after the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, in the last book of the Christian Bible, the Book of Revelation (The Apocalypse), nobody had seen Jesus anymore, but, there is a 100-year-old last surviving apostle, John, in the Island of Patmos, Greece, and suddenly, he hears a voice. He thinks to himself “that voice sounds familiar”. He turns around and sees the cosmic Christ. Now, guess what comes out of Jesus`s mouth! John! FEAR NOT!

Arnon Rafael Louiv on Marianna Seiler and Judge Beth Bloom: ‘My Summer at the United States District Court, Southern District of Florida’…

Hello Marianna Seiler,

I was moved by your experience as an intern serving under Judge Beth Bloom`s tutelage and humbly decided to reblog your post which I thought needed republishing. Thank you for the heartfelt, sincere and truly visceral yet intellectual narrative.

Arnon Rafael Louiv

By Marianna Seiler,

During the summer following my 1L year I had the privilege of working as an intern for United States District Judge Beth Bloom. Judge Bloom is one of the kindest, most caring, brilliant and inspiring women and I cannot rave enough about the opportunity I had to learn from her. “Are we learning?”, “What did you learn today?”, and “What can I do to help you learn more?” were Judge Bloom’s three favorite questions for her summer interns.

Judge Bloom works out of both the Fort Lauderdale and Miami federal courthouses. Depending on what might be scheduled on a given day, we could be working in either one or both locations. Having a change of scenery with different courthouses, different judges and different interns was extra fun.

As interns we received assignments from our supervising law clerks and were encouraged to go to all of Judge Bloom’s hearings, trials, and sentencings. Throughout the summer I completed memos and draft orders for six motions to dismiss, two Daubert motions and a motion for summary judgment. For one of the motions to dismiss, I even got to request a hearing and was allowed to sit in the Law Clerk/Courtroom Deputy chair since I had done the research and had discussed it with Judge Bloom prior to her ruling from the bench.

On top of the duties that come with being a United States District Judge, Judge Bloom spent every single day trying to make sure her interns were able to experience and learn as much about the legal system as possible. She believed that the best way to learn was through hands-on experience as well as by experiencing as much of the legal world inside and outside of the courthouse. She took us with her to a luncheon where she spoke to the North Broward Bar Association, to the Federal Bar’s Summer Associate Law Day, and to a Naturalization Ceremony she presided over. At the Naturalization Ceremony I was brought to tears by the stories of United States immigrants who had been through it all just to achieve their dreams of becoming United States citizens.

We watched several of Judge Bloom’s cases and those of other U.S. District judges as well as proceedings in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, family court, domestic violence court, and even a mob murder trial. I watched the detainment of twenty-seven members of the Latin Kings and the sentencing of two Al-Qaeda terrorists to whom Judge Bloom sentenced the maximum stating, “You are a terrorist, evil in nature and evil in your deeds.” We also got to go on a tour of Miami’s Federal Detention Center and the women’s prison in Homestead, Florida where we were able to see what goes on in criminal cases outside the walls of the courthouse before and after detainment, bond hearings and sentencings.

Even with all this, Judge Bloom planned special events for us. She and her law clerks also helped us plan a dessert reception, a sweet meet, and movie nights to get to know other judges, law clerks and interns in each courthouse. We had the dessert reception early in the summer and every other Tuesday night we invited interns to join us in watching law-related movies such as Paper ChaseTwelve Angry MenRun Away Jury and My Cousin Vinny. We also had a sweet meet where we brought in Judge Robin Rosenbaum, United States Circuit Judge for the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit.

As you can see, I could go on forever about my amazing experience but I suggest taking the time to work for a judge at some point during your law school career. Not only will you learn about the law and work on real cases, but many judges make it their mission to help you learn and to show you as much as possible both inside and outside of their courtroom and chambers.

CELESTIAL GODS and us BELOW

By (c) Arnon Louiv

 It is more than a big bang theory. It has a beginning,

It is written from the heavens and it has no ending.

It is the story of something called ex-nihilo,

First, we have to go high to see what is below.

 

Life comes forth from a man inside a woman. Why?

An imitation brought down from the celestial being.

“Let US make man in our image,” so said Elohim,

US could it be God male and female in the sky?

 

The first lovemaking and the sons of God alive,

Years living round the tree of life and good and evil,

All from one source and the Earth brought forth life,

Eternal fight rages on, and no matter what, it is legal.

GirlandBoyspace

Decreed from the high heavens and here we are,

In the theater of human pain, suffering and love,

We are the sons and daughters of celestial stars,

It is up to us to be cruel vultures or kinetic dove.

Arnon Louiv on Birago Diop, Senegalese Poet, Novelist and Diplomat…

July 11, 2018 at 17:45 | Posted in Articles by Arnon Louiv | Leave a comment

Birago Diop (1906-1989) was born in Ouakam, a neighborhood in Dakar, Senegal. He was a poet, novelist, diplomat, veterinary surgeon and the founder of the negritude movement in the 1930s. This movement helped promote African cultural values. He was indeed a distinguished and well recognized writer from Senegal and his writings earned him the French African Grand Prix in literature in 1964.

One of his famous poems, and my favorite, is “LES MORTS NE SONT PAS MORTS,” in which he addresses the popular African belief that ancestors are present in the natural world and are not really dead. It made me truly think a bit of the ancient Tarascans’ DAY OF THE DEAD in today’s Mexico.

It is a documentary film which I directed, wrote and produced.

Below is Diop`s great poem:

LES MORTS NE SON PAS MORTS

Ecoute plus souvent

Les Choses que Les Etres

La voix du Feu s`entendu,

Entends la Voix de l`Eau.

Ecoute dans le Vent Le Buisson en sanglots:

C`est le Souffle des ancêtres.

Ceux qui sont morts ne sont jamais partis:

Ils sont dans l`Ombre qui s’éclaire

Et dans l’ombre qui s’épaissit.

Les Morts ne sont pas sous la Terre:

Ils sont dans l’Arbre qui frémit,

Ils sont dans le Bois qui gémit,

Ils sont dans l’Eau qui coule,

Ils sont dans l’Eau qui dort,

Ils sont dans la Case, ils sont dans la Foule:

Les Morts ne sont pas morts.
