Chain Breaker

Yes, I have had chains, maybe I do now.  I have seen real chains come off people.

Don’t know what I am talking about?  Read John.

Preserving Freedoms

This delivery came at a Tennessee football game.  Christianity and Jesus are now the target of persecution.

THIS IS AS GOOD AS IT GETS! GOD BLESS YOU AS YOU READS THIS! Pass it on if you like it. I find it interesting that a high school principal sees the problem, but our society cannot.

This is a statement that was read over the PA system at the football game at Roane County High School, Kingston, Tennessee by school Principal Jody McLeod.

It has always been the custom at Roane County High School football games, to say a prayer and play the National Anthem, to honor God and Country.

Due to a recent ruling by the Supreme Court, I am told that saying a Prayer is a violation of Federal Case Law. As I understand the law at this time, I can use this public facility to approve of sexual perversion and call it “an alternate life style,” and if someone is offended, that’s OK.

I can use it to condone sexual promiscuity, by dispensing condoms and calling it, “safe sex.” If someone is offended, that’s OK.

I can even use this public facility to present the merits of killing an unborn baby as a “viable” Means of birth control.” If someone is offended, no problem…

I can designate a school day as “Earth Day” and involve students in activities to worship religiously and praise the goddess “Mother Earth” and call it “ecology..”

I can use literature, videos and presentations in the classroom that depicts people with strong, traditional Christian convictions as “simple minded” and “ignorant” and call it “enlightenment..”

However, if anyone uses this facility to honor GOD and to ask HIM to bless this event with safety and good sportsmanship, then Federal Case Law is violated.

This appears to be inconsistent at best, and at worst, diabolical. Apparently, we are to be tolerant of everything and anyone, except GOD and HIS Commandments.

Nevertheless , as a school principal, I frequently ask staff and students to abide by rules with which they do not necessarily agree. For me to do otherwise would be inconsistent at best, and at worst, hypocritical. I suffer from that affliction enough unintentionally. I certainly do not need to add an intentional transgression.

For this reason, I shall “Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s,” and refrain from praying at this time.

However, if you feel inspired to honor, praise and thank GOD and ask HIM, in the name of JESUS, to bless this event, please feel free to do so.  As far as I know, that’s not against the law–yet!

One by one, the people in the stands bowed their heads, held hands with one another and began to pray.

They prayed in the stands. They prayed in the team huddles. They prayed at the concession stand and they prayed in the Announcer’s Box!

The only place they didn’t pray was in the Supreme Court of the United States of America- the Seat of Justice in the one nation, under God.

This principal remembered what so many have forgotten. We are given the Freedom of Religion, not the Freedom from Religion in the US Constitution.  Praise GOD that we know Him! Be faithful to Him today.

JESUS said, “If you are ashamed of ME before men, then I will be ashamed of you before My Father..”

May freedom and justice reign throughout the earth!

 

Radical Islam in Decline?

This is a painful day for many Americans.  I grieve with those for their lost loved ones.  Let us not forget what happened just 15 years ago.  Some evil element attacked freedom and the march against our freedoms continue inside the USA and from the outside.

Watch this video with me.  I hope Mr Pipes is correct.  Regardless, we keep our vigilance against tyranny in support of freedom for all of humanity.

Ben Carson’s Best Speech!

Ben Carson–great ideas he gives here!

Videographer’s comments: The importance of this speech by Ben Carson cannot be overstated. He was introduced by Senator Sessions and completely annihilated everything Obama stood for. Watch Obama’s face as Carson continues to press that the foundation of America is a Christian God. At the start Obama is spitting out his gum and sticking it under the table, to the middle where Obama realizes the speech may be directed at him, and then near the end where Obama looks like he’s getting very annoyed and sizing Carson up. Carson subtly, but directly blasts Obama with him seated 5 feet away. Carson touches on topics ranging from education (common core), IRS scandal, Obamacare, the importance of the freedom of speech, and one nation under God. This is the speech that fueled this present election.Carson was asked to apologize to Obama following the speech, which he never did.

I say there is many points in this speech for all of us.  Why would President Obama be offended?  (I don’t believe he was humiliated by this data.) I take Dr. Carson to heart and make the changes I personally need to support.  Everybody has takeaways from this speech.  These words are not for just one man.

Brock Turner: Raped and Then Released!

In the 24 hours news cycle how quickly we forget.  Do you know Brock Turner?  I had

Brock Turner

forgotten him.  His name came up in the news today because he was released after serving 3 months–ONLY 3 months for a rape he committed against a defenseless woman who was passed out.  Why did he not serve the “light” 6 months sentence he was given?  Because this culture is corrupt.  $$ buys the judicial system and thus less time.  He is privileged and who was she anyway?

A bicyclist carries a sign critical of the judge's sentencing in the Brock Turner case Friday in San Jose.

Yes, Judge Persky let him out after 3 months though the sentence was 6 months.  Again money talks!

Did Judge Persky consult the prosecutor or the victim before the release?  It is doubtful.  When is our justice system going to start sending the right messages instead of the wrong ones?  This is the wrong message, Judge Perky, to the would be rapists out there.  I am male but believe me I know, there are many rapists and potential rapists out there.   The values the real culture promotes condones sex crimes and this early release sends yet another signal–it’s okay, you get off light.    Read more of this post
