  • 55. Sexual Narcissism & Love

    ὑπερηφανία, ας, ἡ (hoop-er-ay-fan-ee'-ah) is the phonetic spelling of the original Greek word for “pride”.By the middle of the 12th century, the Old English definition referred to the noun “priden” and defined as  "to congratulate (oneself), be proud, indulge in self-esteem;" "be arrogant, act haughtily”.When we think of sexual narcissism, it is an individual or group’s unnecessary promotion of their sexual preferences and behaviors. This is the basis for the month of June being celebrated as "pride month".In this rewind from June 2023, episode 25, “Love is Not Love”, I share how love is psychological, biological, and behavioral. Yet, it is often used to promote hypersexuality, premature sexual behaviors, and the promotion of psychological disorders rather than the encouragement of healing.Tonight, listen-in to hear about sexual narcissism as well as what love is and what love is not.In Science & Love,~ Dr. Renee’ Carr  #WhatIsLove#Psychology#HumanSexuality____________________________🗣️LET US KNOW WHAT YOU THINK!Instagram:        @PoliticsAndPsychologyFacebook:         @PoliticsAndPsychologyPodcastX / Twitter:       @DrReneeCarr
  • 53. Making The Bible Illegal

    A new bill will soon make the teachings of the Bible illegal. Specifically, it will be a hate crime and antisemitic if it is taught that Jesus was killed by Jews.H.R. 6090 – The Antisemitism Awareness Act of 2023 has already passed in the House of Representatives and was sent to the Senate in May 2024. Those in Congress who support this bill say it is to stop college protests and avoid hatred enacted against Jewish persons. 550 rabbis have already sent a letter to President Biden, urging him to make it illegal to spread “conspiracy theories” as well as “allegations” regarding Jewish association with Jesus’ death.Listen-in to hear how Congress is seeking to re-write history and remove religious freedoms for ALL citizens and religions. In Science & Love, ~ Dr. Renee’ Carr ____________________________🗣️LET US KNOW WHAT YOU THINK!Instagram:         @PoliticsAndPsychologyFacebook:          @PoliticsAndPsychologyPodcastX / Twitter:        @DrReneeCarr#HR6090 #BibleBan #ReligionAndPolitics #PoliticsAndPsychology ____________________________🔗Related Link & InformationH.R.6090 - Antisemitism Awareness Act of 2023 The International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) The IHRA working defition of antisemitism How did your U.S. Representative vote?1.   click link:   select your state

  • 49. Judge the Judges

    The Justices of the Supreme Court have received over 1,309 luxury vacations, yacht and private jet travel, and other expensive gifts – including real estate and private school tuition for their relatives. The majority of these gifts are from companies and individuals who have had court cases presented before the Justice to whom they gave a gift. It is time to judge the judges – and hold them accountable for their unethical, bad behavior.

  • 47. ChatGPT = lazy, less educated, less creativity

    Open AI is the technology research company that created ChatGPT. They claim their mission to be, “advancing A.I. in a way that benefits all of humanity”. However, instead, they market their product to individuals most likely to be lazy, less educated, and with less creativity; And they encourage their app to be used by these individuals in ways that are more harmful than helpful to humanity.  Despite the potential advances this technology app could provide, it is the marketing and misuse of it that is creating a society that is more dishonest, selfish, exploitative, and less creative.
