state of emergency by Calvin Chism
San Quentin, Ca. 94974


When your life is not on the scale's of "just us" Let's take a mock election. When the alegded free
world has two choice's, nuclear war or a woman choice to sit as comander & chief, while children
and people with severe mental health issues are being subjected to creed & unusual punishment/double
jeopardy they thought a mock election was a funny thing to do. Men just food for thought.
Those name's & number's of men who participated power was null & void w/a joke when we could have stood
as one voice in solidarity and used our gathered resources to have our voice heard & counted in so many
way via social media.
So please post this important notice as a state of emergency.
62 & 66 strips a human being of their fundamental right to be treated fair & impartial and given the
right to redress at a state & (?) level Outer (?) his life hangs on the scale's that authority be
given to every inmate who request good time credit and shows good merit & the desire to be noticed.
Like an appeal. Cause a man who works for the betterment of himself is a better man because of the
work it took to get there.
Enhancements on all criminal cases should be held to review anually.
Juveniles should be subject to screening like a grand jury to be tried as an adult.
So post this share this post maybe it lands on the right desk. Send it to at least one person and
if you have the time send me a copy and your responce.

In solidarity

Hi Calvin,
no it took me also really long, and I hope you don't mind to much me responding here, as I'll just give you some information on Calvinism I picked from the internet:

"How Did Calvinism Affect Reformation?

John Calvin is a principal figure of the Protestant Reformation. Martin Luther, along with Henry VIII, separated Protestantism from the Roman Catholic Church, and Calvin's doctrines and theology created profound changes within the fledgling Protestant churches. In particular, Calvin led Protestantism to insert itself into state control and secular affairs, and his ideas about salvation and whether it is predestined by God or open to all, are still debated in contemporary times.
Protestant Reformation

The Protestant Reformation had three components: Lutheran, Reformed and English. The Lutheran and English Reformations are a product of schism with the Roman Catholic Church. The Reformed, or Calvinist, Reformation resulted from theological differences among early Protestants. Reformation began in the early 16th century when the German monk Martin Luther (1483-1546) challenged papal authority. Luther proposed a revolutionary idea that people can seek salvation without mediation by religious authority. Soon after, King Henry VIII of England parted from the Roman Catholic Church because the pope would not grant him a divorce from Catherine of Aragon, and the Church of England was born. In the 1530s, John Calvin, heavily influenced by the Swiss reformer, Ulrich Zwingli, diverged from the Lutherans over the concept of predestination and created the Reformed branch of Protestantism.
John Calvin

John Calvin (1509-1564), a French theologian, brought profound changes to the Reformation. By 1530, he had become an aggressive advocate of Protestantism, and in 1536, Calvin went to Geneva to help the city split from the Roman Catholic Church. However, Calvin's reforms were not welcome by those in power, and he fled the city in 1538. Upon his return in 1541, he instituted radical reform into church structure and exerted religious authority over the state. His reforms quickly became known as Calvinism and spread throughout Europe, where they heavily influenced Protestant reforms.
Reformed Church

Calvin is the father of the Reformed Church, which asserts the Calvinist doctrine that God is the absolute authority and believes in predestined salvation for a select few. The early reforms instituted by Calvin in Geneva called for religious authority over moral behavior, but at the same time sought to make religious authority and clergy independent of state control. Calvin's reformed theology has five principle points: the total depravity of humans; predestination; limited atonement; irresistible grace; and perseverance of the saints.

Calvin and Reformation

In 1536, Calvin published "Institutes of the Christian Religion" and established his Reformed Protestantism in Geneva. He wanted to create the ideal Protestant community in much the same way the Roman Catholic Church established its seat of power in Rome. Calvin urged the separation of church and state in Geneva, but he gave ultimate control to the church. He influenced the Reformation in two important ways. First, his concept of predestination and his popular postulate that God is the supreme authority became the theological hallmarks of future Protestant denominations such as the Huguenot, Puritan, Presbyterian, and the Reformed churches. Second, he influenced future Protestant-led governments to incorporate church authority into the affairs of the state."

On the Dutch refomed church (I was refering to this church) from wikipedia: "The history of the Netherlands Reformed Churches (Dutch Nederlands Gereformeerde Kerken) coincides to a great extent with that of the Reformed Churches (Liberated), of which it was a part until the early 1960s. That denomination arose out of a conflict within the Reformed Churches in the Netherlands over the covenant and the power of the general synod. After that schism, referred to as the Liberation (Dutch Vrijmaking), the Liberated churches became a very conservative, orthodox denomination. Wary of the liberal tendencies within various Reformed denominations, they started to develop a number of cultural and political structures and institutes, membership in which was restricted to church members. Some within the church held the view that the Liberated church was the only true church in the Netherlands, implying that all other Christians were in violation of God's command to be joined to God's covenant people. A sizeable group disagreed with this view. In 1964 the disagreement came to a head, when Rev. Van der Ziel was accused of errors in his teaching and found guilty by the synod of the Reformed Churches (Liberated), which defrocked him. Many members protested against this measure and in 1966 they drew up an open letter with a petition to voice their protest. However, local church councils responded by excommunicating members who signed the petition. Those members, and many who followed them voluntarily, formed a new group. This federation of Reformed Churches was referred to as buitenverbanders (literally, "those outside the denomination") until 1979, when the current name Netherlands Reformed Churches was adopted."

The last schism in the other, liberated branch is from 2003: "In 2003, a small number of members separated from the Reformed Churches (Liberated) to form the New Reformed Churches out of protest against recent rulings by the general synod. This schism was instigated largely by the Reformanda movement, a continuing element of the radical wing of the church, which still held to the "only true church" view. This movement objected to what it saw as liberalising tendencies within the denomination, in particular to the introduction of hymns (Reformanda approves only the Psalter) and the synod's decisions regarding the Fourth Commandment (keeping of the Sabbath) and remarriage after divorce. Reformanda alleged that in these areas the Liberated churches were violating Scripture and the movement urged local congregations to refuse to confirm the synod's Acts. Only a few congregations followed this call. The objectors decided to secede." This church also played a role in the apartheid regime in South Arfica, as there where also given theological reasons for apartheid. Afrikaner Calvinism is a theoretical cultural and religious development among Afrikaners that combined elements of seventeenth-century Calvinist doctrine with a "chosen people" ideology similar to that espoused by proponents of the Jewish nation.[1] A number of modern studies have argued that this gave rise to the Great Trek while serving to legimitise the subordination of other South African ethnic groups, thus laying the foundation for modern Afrikaner nationalism and apartheid.[2] Dissenting scholars have asserted that Calvinism did not in fact play a significant role in Afrikaner society until the trauma of the Second Boer War, citing the fact that early settlers dwelt in isolated frontier conditions and lived much closer to pseudo-Christian animist beliefs than organised religion.
