Shakespeare vs. Bible: How 1 influenced the other

William Shakespeare with his family

William Shakespeare with his family

Miguel de Cervantes influenced the Spanish language in the same way William Shakespeare influenced the English language.

Miguel de Cervantes fought the Muslim Ottoman Turks at the Battle of Lepanto in 1571. In 1575, he was captured by Muslim Barbary pirates and held as a slave in North Africa for five years. Cervantes was ransomed back the the Catholic Order Trinitarians and returned to Spain. He wrote “Don Quixote de La Mancha” in 1605, which is considered the first modern European novel.

Miguel de Cervantes died on the same day William Shakespeare died, April 23, 1616, though some claim a day earlier. In fact it was at least eleven days earlier, as Catholic Spain used the Gregorian Calendar and Anglican England still used the old Julian Calendar.

William Shakespeare was born April 23, 1564. His 38 plays impacted world literature. William Shakespeare married Ann Hathaway, had three children, moved to London, and became shareholding director of Globe Theater. He wrote such classics as “Hamlet,” “Macbeth,” “Othello,” “King Lear” and “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”

In 1591, Shakespeare introduced his play, “King Henry the Sixth,” portraying England’s monarch who ruled 1422 to 1461, and 1470 to 1471, and who also was the disputed King of France from 1422 to 1453.

In the play, Shakespeare wrote in Part II, act II, scene i, line 34:

Blessed are the peacemakers on earth.

In “King Henry the Sixth,” Part II, act II, scene i, line 66, Shakespeare wrote:

Now, God be praised, that to the believing souls,
Gives light in darkness, comfort in despair!

In scene iii, line 55, he exclaimed: “God defend the right!”

In Part III, act V, scene v, line 7, Shakespeare penned:

So part we sadly in this troublous world,
To meet with joy in sweet Jerusalem.

In 1592-93, William Shakespeare wrote the play “King Richard the Third,” portraying the life of England’s monarch who ruled 1483-1485

In the play, Shakespeare wrote in act I, scene iv:

O, I have passed a miserable night,
So full of ugly sights, of ghastly dreams,
That, as I am a Christian faithful man,
I would not spend another such a night,
Though ’twere to but a world of happy days.

Shakespeare wrote in “King Richard the Third,” act I, scene 4:

Before I be convict by course of law,
To threaten me with death is most unlawful.
I charge you, as you hope for any goodness,
By Christ’s dear blood shed for our grievous sins
That you depart and lay no hands on me.

In 1595-96, Shakespeare wrote the play “King Richard the Second,” England’s king from 1377 to 1399. In act IV, scene i, line 97, Shakespeare wrote:

Many a time hath banished Norfolk fought
For Jesus Christ in glorious Christian field,
Streaming the ensign of the Christian Cross,
And there at Venice, gave His body to that pleasant country’s earth,
And his pure soul unto his captain Christ,
Under whose colors he had fought so long.

In “King Richard the Second,” act IV, scene i, line 170, Shakespeare wrote:

So Judas did to Christ: but He, in twelve,
Found truth in all but one; I, in twelve thousand, none.
God save the king! Will no man say, amen?

In “King Richard the Second,” act IV, scene i, line 239, Shakespeare wrote:

Some of you with Pilate wash your hands,
Showing an outward pity.

In the play “The Merchant of Venice,” act I, scene ii, line 59, Shakespeare penned:

God made him, and therefore let him pass for a man.

In “The Merchant of Venice,” act I, scene iii, line 99, Shakespeare wrote:

Mark you this, Bassanio:
The devil can cite Scripture for his own purpose.
An evil soul, producing holy witness,
Is like a villain with a smiling cheek,
A goodly apple rotten at the heart.

In “The Merchant of Venice,” act IV, scene i, line 184, Shakespeare wrote:

The quality of mercy is not strained,
It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven
Upon the place beneath: it is twice blessed;
It blessed him that gives and him that takes:

Tis mightiest in the mightiest; it becomes
The throned monarch better than his crown;
His scepter shows the force of temporal power,
The attribute to awe and majesty,
Wherein doth sit the dread and fear of kings,

But mercy is above this sceptered sway,
It is enthroned in the hearts of kings,
It is an attribute to God himself,
And earthly power doth then show likest God’s
When mercy seasons justice.

Therefore … though justice be thy plea, consider this,
That in the course of justice, none of us
Should see salvation: we do pray for mercy,
And that same prayer doth teach us all to render
The deeds of mercy.

In 1598, Shakespeare wrote “King Henry the Fourth,” portraying the King who ruled England from 1399 to 1413. In part I, act i, scene 1, line 18, Shakespeare wrote:

Therefore friends,
As far as to the sepulchre of Christ,
Whose soldier now, under whose blessed cross
We are impressed and engaged to fight….
To chase these pagans in those holy fields.
Over whose acres walk’d those blessed feet,
Which fourteen hundred years ago were nail’d
For our advantage on the bitter cross.

In 1598-1600, Shakespeare wrote “King Henry the Fifth,” about the King of England who ruled from 1413-1422. In act III, scene vi, line 181, William Shakespeare wrote:

We are in God’s hand.

In “King Henry the Fifth,” act IV, scene i, line 309, Shakespeare wrote:

O God of battles! steel my soldiers’ hearts;
Possess them not with fear; take from them now
The sense of reckoning, if the opposed numbers
Pluck their hearts from them.

In his longest play, “The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark,” 1600-01, act I, scene I, Shakespeare wrote:

Some say – that ever ‘gainst that season comes
Wherein our Saviour’s birth is celebrated
The bird of dawning singeth all night long.

In “Hamlet,” act III, scene i, line 150, Shakespeare wrote:

I have heard of your paintings too, well enough;
God has given you one face, and you make yourselves another.

In “Hamlet,” act III, iv, line 149, Shakespeare wrote:

Confess yourself to heaven;
Repent what’s past; avoid what is to come.

In “Hamlet,” act V, scene i, line 84, Shakespeare wrote:

A politician … one that would circumvent God.

In “Hamlet,” act v, scene ii, Shakespeare wrote:

Now cracks a noble heart. Good night, sweet prince,
And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest!

William Shakespeare wrote in “Othello,” 1604-05, act I, scene i, line 108:

You are one of those that will not serve God if the devil bid you.

In “Othello,” act II, scene iii, line 106, Shakespeare wrote:

Well, God’s above all;
and there be souls must be saved,
and there be souls must not be saved.

In “Othello,” act II, scene iii, line 293, Shakespeare wrote:

O God! that men should put an enemy in their mouths to steal away their brains;
that we should, with joy, pleasance, revel, and applause, transform ourselves into beasts.

In 1613, William Shakespeare wrote his play “King Henry the Eighth,” about the ruler of England from 1509 to 1547. In act III, scene ii, line 456, Shakespeare wrote:

Had I but served my God with half the zeal I served my king, he would not in mine age Have left me naked to mine enemies.

William Shakespeare remarked:

God’s goodness hath been great to thee;
Let never day nor night unhallowed pass,
But still remember what the Lord hath done.

Nine years after the founding of Jamestown, Virginia, William Shakespeare died on April 23, 1616. Only 52 years old at his death, William Shakespeare wrote in his will: “In the name of God, Amen! I, William Shakespeare, of Stratford-upon-Avon, in the county of Warr., gent., in perfect health and memory, God be praised, do make and ordain this my last will and testament in manner and form following, that is to say, First, I commend my soul into the hands of God, my Creator, hoping and assuredly believing, through the only merits of Jesus Christ, my Saviour, to be made partaker of life everlasting, and my body to the earth whereof it is made.”

Carved on Shakespeare’s tomb in Holy Trinity Church, Stratford-on-Avon, England, is:

Good friend for Jesus sake forbeare,
To digg the dust enclosed heare.
Blese be ye man spares thes stones,
And curst be he moves my bones.

Woodrow Wilson stated at the tercentenary celebration of the translation of the Bible into the English language, May 7, 1911: “How like to the Scripture is all great literature! What is it that entrances us when we read or witness a play of Shakespeare? It is the consciousness that this man, this all-observing mind, saw men of every cast and kind as they were in their habits, as they lived. And as passage succeeds passage we seem to see the characters of ourselves and our friends portrayed by this ancient writer, and a play of Shakespeare is just as modern to-day as upon the day it was penned and first enacted. And the Bible is without age or date or time. It is a picture of the human heart displayed for all ages and for all sorts and conditions of men.”

U.S. District Court decision Crockett v. Sorenson (W.D. Va. 1983) stated: “The First Amendment was never intended to insulate our public institutions from any mention of God, the Bible or religion. … Some of the better known works which rely heavily on allusions from the Bible include … the plays of Shakespeare, especially Measure for Measure; … Secular education imposes immediate demands that the student have a good knowledge of the Bible. … A basic background in the Bible is essential to fully appreciate and understand both Western culture and current events.”

This day in WND history: Airport forces girl to remove fake leg

KathleenOKelly1Airport forces girl to remove fake leg

April 23, 2003: A year-and-a-half after the terrorist attacks of 9/11, a teen-age athlete and her family were outraged after airport security officials forced the girl to remove her prosthetic limb in public.

Kathleen O’Kelly-Kennedy, Australia’s tallest female basketball player, said she was humiliated when forced to prove her right leg was a prosthesis in front of dozens of other horrified airline passengers.

“It is quite clear when I lift my pants that I wear a leg prosthesis,” O’Kelly-Kennedy said.

“I had also given it a few whacks so there was no doubt that it sounded like a false leg. It was too much that security staff then chose to frisk me, from ankle to hip, in front of dozens of other passengers. I had already taken my shoes off, which made standing difficult, and I was not even offered a seat.”

Power outages coincide in L.A., New York, San Francisco

(Inverse) A series of subsequent power outages in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York City left commuters stranded and traffic backed up on Friday morning. Although the outages occurred around the same time, there is as of yet no evidence that they were connected by anything more than coincidence.

Power Outage in New York Friday

The first outage occurred at around 7:20 a.m. in New York, when the power went down at the 7th Avenue and 53rd Street subway station, which sent a shockwave of significant delays out from the hub and into the rest of the subway system. By 11:30 a.m. the city’s MTA confirmed that generators were running again in the station, although the New York subways were set to run delayed into the afternoon.

The MTA and Con Ed are still working to determine the cause of the outage.

It might not be a “coincidence” … next time. Get the inside story on the threat to the U.S. power grid, and how the nation should defend itself, in “A Nation Forsaken. EMP: The Escalating Threat of an American Catastrophe,” by F. Michael Maloof.

Rape survivors face jail if they won't testify in Louisiana

(London Independent) A Louisiana district attorney has said he will jail rape survivors who choose not to testify against their assailants.

Orleans Parish District Attorney Leon Cannizzaro said he would use material witness warrants to compel victims in some rape and domestic violence cases to testify, despite criticism from advocacy groups.

“If I have to put a victim of a crime in jail, for eight days, in order to… keep the rapist off of the street, for a period of years and to prevent him from raping or harming someone else, I’m going to do that,” Mr Cannizzaro told Morning Eyewitness News on 13 April.

Psychiatrists target Donald Trump with mental illness disinformation campaign

(INTELLIHUB) — A group of left-leaning psychiatrists recently told a conference at Yale University that Donald Trump has the hallmarks of mental illness that “compromise” his role as president despite never actually meeting with him.

The 25 researchers have taken the campaign against Trump to the next level, breaking away from all ethical standards by discussing so-called evidence of his mental health that has already been attacked by others within the psychiatric community.

“Dr James Gilligan, a psychiatrist, and professor at New York University, said many psychiatrists have been timid about approaching the topic because of the Goldwater rule,” reported the Daily Mail. “The rule states it’s unethical for psychiatrists to give a professional opinion about public figures they have not examined in person.”

“However, Dr. Gilligan insists his and his colleagues’ duty comes from the Duty to Warn, a concept about when a medical professional fails to warn ‘victims’ when someone communicates an explicit threat of danger.”

The Daily Mail continued, “The group, organized by psychiatrist Dr John Gartner, has considered the president – who’s fast approaching his 100th day in office on April 29 – an unfit leader for the US.”

The group has gone so far as to start a petition that has gathered over 40,000 signatures and specifically calls for removing the sitting president literally based on the outside opinion of 25 “professionals”.

We, the undersigned mental health professionals (please state your degree), believe in our professional judgment that Donald Trump manifests a serious mental illness that renders him psychologically incapable of competently discharging the duties of President of the United States. And we respectfully request he be removed from office, according to article 4 of the 25th amendment to the Constitution, which states that the president will be replaced if he is “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.”

Fortunately, some within the community have seen through this transparent attempt at taking out the president for political reasons with the man who co-wrote the literal manual on mental disorders destroying the claims made by Garner and his group.

“Most amateur diagnosticians have mislabeled President Trump with the diagnosis of narcissistic personality disorder. I wrote the criteria that define this disorder, and Mr. Trump doesn’t meet them. He may be a world-class narcissist, but this doesn’t make him mentally ill, because he does not suffer from the distress and impairment required to diagnose mental disorder,” wrote Dr. Allen Frances in a letter to the New York Times.

This is clearly yet another attempt by the global establishment to take out the anti-globalist sitting president with the “priesthood” being simply the latest weapon deployed.

'70s Weather Underground terrorist to stay in prison

(CBS News) A former radical who drove a getaway car during a Brinks armored car robbery that led to the deaths of two police officers and a security guard has been denied parole.

The New York state Parole Board denied Judith Clark’s bid for parole on Friday even after Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo met with Clark in prison and made the decision to commute her sentence.

Clark has served 35 years of a maximum 75-year sentence for her role in the 1981 robbery.

Thousands of ex-Taliban fighters may have entered Germany

(Reuters) Thousands of former Taliban fighters may have entered Germany over the past two years among an influx of more than a million migrants and refugees, Der Spiegel magazine reported on Saturday.

Germany’s Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) informed security officials that thousands of migrants had identified themselves as former Taliban insurgents during the asylum application process, the magazine said.

It added that at least 70 Afghan men were being investigated by Germany’s over-stretched chief federal prosecutor, though it was not clear whether all of them were suspected of being active Taliban militants.

Dopers' 4/20 rally leaves Denver Civic Center litter strewn

(KCNC-TV) Cleanup is underway in Civic Center Park after some people got into trash bags left over from Thursday’s 4/20 rally and threw trash all over the grass and sidewalks.

So far it’s not clear who made the big mess, but an organizer of the rally said he is taking responsibility for it.

“The park had been picked up last night. All the trash had been placed in about 74 big trash bags and I believe last night, from what I hear from Parks and Rec, we had a few people come and dump all the bags out on the park,” Santino Walter told CBS4.
