Well, I knew it would happen eventually; Kansas is slipping into the depths of hell. You’re skeptical? Listen to this: the Topeka City Council is considering an anti-discrimination ordinance that would include sexual orientation and gender identity. Yeah, that Topeka, home of the Westboro Baptist Church. Whoa....Read more!This is good news. After all, some one needs to put a stop to some of the actions of the Religious Right. The reason that they make me so very very angry is I see the results of their actions. They do and have done more to drive people away from Christianity than Jezebel and Judas Iscariot and Hitler and Stalin--all combined--more than they dreamed possible even.
The UNHOLY Alliance between politics and religion must end, because it reflects horribly on Jesus Christ--I have seen it in action. I remember one of the last services that I attended at New Beginnings Family Life Center, formerly Bedford Assemblies of God. The pastor was so excited about having a full house, another church closed down and many of their members came to New Beginnings. This got him so excited that he concluded his sermon with a reading from what sounded like the Republican Party Platform. The whole congregation sat there in shock. He claimed he was amazed that everyone was not shouting--AMEN AND GLORI HALLILUJIAH AND THE LIKE--he must have forgotten that Bedford is in Cuyahoga County--only one of, if not, the most Democratic County in Ohio. The following Sunday, there was a new low in attendance. After all, most people come to church to hear about Jesus, not politics.
In addition, WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE--TO BE PERSECUTED FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS SAKE---ONE CANNOT BE BREAKING THE LAW--WHEN ONE IS BREAKING THE LAW AND GETS ARRESTED--THAT IS SIMPLY GETTING CAUGHT BREAKING THE LAW--NO MATTER WHAT RELIGION YOU ARE OR ARE NOT--GETTING CAUGHT WITH ONE'S HAND IN THE COOKIE JAR IS GETTING CAUGHT WITH ONE'S HAND IN THE COOKIE JAR!!!!
Which reminds me, I wonder how many Fair Employment Laws, my former employers the Campes and sister--Ethel 'Jane' are breaking now, in the name of THE FATHER AND THE SON AND THE HOLY SPIRIT. Maybe they did make up with their family members which also run a cleaning service so that they can make believe that there are two cleaning companies, instead of one, that way they can claim their employee work two part-time jobs, instead of one full-time job, because God Forbid the Workman be worthy of their wages or RECEIVING HEALTHCARE BENEFITS---IT IS AMEN AND GLORI HALLILUJIAH---ANYTHING TO MAKE THE COMPANY MONEY-MONEY-MONEY--THEN, AGAIN, THIS IS OHIO--OUR STATE GOVERNMENT IS JUST AS CORRUPT--NO OVERSIGHTS OVER THE MONEY THAT IS SUPPOSELY GOING TO --JOBS OHIO.
RIGHT WING REPUBLICANS AND RIGHT WING CHRISTIANS AN UNHOLY ALLIANCE OF THIEVES.
END PART ONE--WITH ANY LUCK AND A WING AND A PRAYER THE ACTION OF SIGNING A PETITION WILL FOLLOW--AFTER ALL, JUST GRIPPING ABOUT A PROBLEM DOES NOTHING BUT ELEVATE MY BLOOD PREASURE. ACTION--NOT WORDS. THE PEN IS Indeed More Powerful than the mere sword.
