    "StopTheTears, I hope you don't consider yourself a christian because your hatred of communism would mean a hatred of certain principles of christianity. 1st century christians practiced communism. Go read the early chapters of the book of Acts."

    44 All the believers were together and had everything in common. 45 They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. Acts 2:44-45 New International Version

    A woman born blind and deaf who helped untold thousands of other deaf and mute people is wicked? You're a goddamned moron!

    I don't care if she was a socialist.-- she did not run for president. The idea behind socialism sounds really good, it just never works, or has not yet. Anyway, I would not hate someone b/c of that. I also don't' care if she was involved with the occult. Spiritualism is not a crime and was very high fashion around the turn of last century. Many wealthy people became involved with it.


    Wiki does an excellent summary of this type of religion . I myself have used tarot cards for years and I guess that is the occult. I do not have horns growing out of my head. I admit my fascination with tarot and all things occult is basically nil now, but I was very into it at one time.

    You sound like some crazy jws .

    Dear OP - I think she accomplished more than you have. I doubt you'll be so remembered.

    The OP has seems to have the same writing flair as Six Screens. Just with a different object of derision.

    Actually the OP is just another one of those folks that refuse to credit the authors

    Careful, your ignorance and paranoia are showing:

    1) American Sign Language, used in the US, Canada and Mexico, is a real an actual language.


    2) Helen Keller did not invent or create "the hand sign system for the deaf,".

    3) "The ILY (I Love You) Sign is similar, but unrelated to the Diablo sign" that you discuss. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ILY_sign

    4) A lot of people were Communist during this time period and read many of the same authors. It is a reflection of the times, not necessarily a reflection of the value of a person. It is entirely unfair to judge historical figures in hindsight.

    5) You should really post your own thoughts and be careful to avoid plagerism. Not good form.
