St. Augustine’s Theory About the Deaf

Pastor Mark Ehrlichmann and its Jesus Camp

Once you join HEARD (Helping Educate to Advance the Rights of the Deaf), you need to praise Jesus first. Is that considered a religious oppression? Remember a documentary film called Jesus Camp that was made in 2006, it was so bad and offensive to their human rights. It was really awful. According to Mark Ehrlichmann, a pastor in God’s eyes, and president of HEARD who lives in Florida, he is also Deaf and a cochlear implant user because he thinks cochlear implants are God’s greatest answers.

A pastor is all about being in charge of a Christian church or congregation–as in Ephesians 4:11, Paul discusses various roles that Chris placed in the church. The expression “pastors and teachers” identifies a single group (Kent, Homer A. 1971. Ephesians: The Glory of the Church. Chicago, IL: Moody)

Pastor Mark Ehrlichmann runs a ministry focusing on incarcerated persons as well as returned citizens. It is just like Jesus CampWhen I first became interested in HEARD in 2013, a month later, he quickly wrote an e-mail to Talila Lewis known as TL, one of the three founders for HEARD, all of them are hearing, and asked her to e-mail me and join him for couple of days hoping that I would join Men’s Retreat in September 2013.

It was supposed to be in Pennsylvania, north of Cumberland, Maryland. He thought he had the power to control my life. Wrong. I had this funny feeling that time and I was happy that I declined his offer. I even told TL that I did not appreciate this.

“Simply pack and go.”—Are all about preaching and all? The worst thing is that pastors around the world preaches violence—anyone who preaches religion tends to be encouraging violence—yes, it’s true. People who do not practice religion are much less than encouraging violence. Everyone knows that religion has a dangerous tendency to promote violence. The Men’s Retreat does not solve everything instead of brainwashing you under Mark’s direction.

I have my own freedom of expression and my pursuit of happiness. I make my own decisions. I have my own faith. I do not need Christians to preach me or force me to go to Jesus camp.

Free Tuition and Housing at Gallaudet University?

ERM1353ArticleHeader.jpg

Why not Gallaudet University offer all DEAF students free tuition and free housing? Yes, as in spelling, F-R-E-E. After reading an article last night about University of Wisconsin-Madison “student government drafted a resolution that would grant Black students free tuition and housing that would help out centuries of racial inequities.”[Please look for the links in the references below] Because of long violent of racial terror, slavery and Jim Crow.

That makes sense. So, why not Gallaudet University offer free higher education for DEAF students? I will do my best to explain why they all should be qualified, no matter what the circumstances are. Deaf students on the campus should be bias-free and not to allow religious bigotry anywhere on the campus.

First, they experience religious terror and slavery because Deaf students are viewed as slaves to allow EPHPHATHA to terrorize their pursuit of happiness and their human rights to embrace the state of being Deaf.

As in slavery, in a Merriam-Webster definition, submission to a dominating influence–in other words, Gallaudet U. allows EPHPHATHA to be a dominating influence in hearing world. They have no business or hold the intellectual ground to own Deaf students as slaves as long as they are all cured to be hearing again. That is wrong!

Remember, EPHPHATHA means “be opened” and the objective of the goal is to eradicate the state of being Deaf. It is a dangerous game. Not only that, but Deaf students were required to show their dB tests to prove that they are Deaf–is that part of profiling, yes?

Why not make Gallaudet University as Deaf-centered? Do all hearing universities require hearing students to show their dB, too?  From Merriam-Webster dictionary on the term, profiling—it means ‘the act of suspecting or targeting a person on the basis of observed characteristics or behaviour‘ therefore, EPHPHATHA has been targeting Deaf people on the basis of observed characteristics based on their state of being Deaf for a century and half.

The goal to make Gallaudet University a Deaf-centered, Deaf-controlled, and Deaf-oriented and seek to stop language discrimination, language bigotry, and language hegemony. Gallaudet University should set a good example of offering educational philosophy that Deaf people have human rights to learn, thrive, and succeed without being oppressed by the energy of EPHPHATHA.

Gallaudet University Manual of Operations declares “EPHPHATHA: Be Opened” and it is clear an Audism market or even hate-speech market to establish rapport in order to dehumanize and confound Deaf people on the campus.

It is time for Student Body Government (SBG) and Graduate School Association (GSA) to team up before the Board of Trustees (BoT) to have the term removed from campus. If Gallaudet University refuses to remove EPHPHATHA then be sure to check out The Peter Principle to make sure Deaf students have the rights to stop the oppressive traits. New people merge into the administration. Open-minded people. All Deaf.

That is why I think Gallaudet University should give ALL DEAF students free tuition and housing until EPHPHATHA is no longer welcomed on the campus. Does that make any sense to you?
