OK, now the judge stayed his own ruling on the Pledge!

Was it the outrage expressed by so many? Was it a hint of the Holy Spirit breathing on him?

I'm guessing the former. I'm hoping it's the latter.

And let's keep praying for Michael Newdow, the "atheist" who brought this suit to court on behalf of his daughter. Speaking of whom, we need to definitely pray for her, too, that she would come to know the love of Jesus, just as Madelyn Murray O'Hair's son, William, also came to know the love of Jesus.

This is beyond ridiculous, but what should I expect from the courts of this country?:


"SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A federal appeals court ruled Wednesday that the Pledge of Allegiance is an unconstitutional endorsement of religion and cannot be recited in schools. "

What's next?? Steel wool for everyone so we can rub, "In God We Trust" off all our coins?

Maybe I'd better not write that too loudly; someone will take that steel wool thought and run with it...right through our court system.

BTW, here's the website of the gentleman who brought the case before the federal appeals court.

This country needs prayer; God will surely continue to withdraw His blessing on us as we continue to turn from Him in our deeds, thoughts, and yes, the words of our school children.

I pledge allegiance, to the flag, of the United States of America. And to the Republic, for which it stands; one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

We have WorldChangers in our midst this week in Knoxville, TN.

They are a group of Southern Baptist high school students from Georgia and South Carolina who gave up a week of their summer vacation to travel to Knoxville and not only offer the Love of Christ Jesus, but they will be doing construction work like roofing, painting and remodeling for low-income houses.

Let's pray for their safety and for paths to be paved to Jesus for the house resident and the neighborhood people!

I've started a separate blog to chronicle the walk into deeply hurtful times as I deal with my cat, Biz, and her malignant cancer.

Apparently, MSNBC is thinking about bowing to anti-Israel forces applying pressure to pull Alan Keyes "Making Sense" show.

You can find information about that at Israel Insider.

Why don't you express your views in support of Alan and his clear, non-PC-laden voice?

Pulling Alan Keyes' show does not Make Sense!

Psalms 23, a psalm of David:

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
  • He provides it all to me

He makes me lie down in green pastures, He leads me besides still waters
  • He knows what's best for me

He restores my soul.
  • When I feel miles away from Him, he brings me quietly back into His fold.

He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake.
  • His Name, HaShem, boldly beckons me to follow.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
  • My 14-year-old cat, Biz, has cancer.

I will fear no evil: for Thou [art] with me; Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me.
  • Who better to comfort me than the Creator of all living beings, including cats?

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies
  • Even though Satan torments me with the impending loss of my cat, Christ stands ready to serve me

Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
  • He loves me so much!

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life
  • As long as I firmly keep my eyes on Him

and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.
  • Only because Christ became the payment for sin on the cross for me (and you)

Some would call me a homophobe.

Some would call me intolerant. Some would say narrow-minded. Some unloving. Some hateful.

But I gotta say it anyway.

Rosie O'Donnell was not born a lesbian.

How on Earth do I know that?

Listen to this from The Movie Club Spotlight "...After her mother died when O'Donnell was 10, she had to make it as the middle child in a family of five kids left virtually alone with an emotionally distant father."

What you have there is a classic recipe for lesbianism: Her Mom dies when she is young. She now seeks that female love, the female bonding that she missed during her formative teen years sans Mother.

Her father was emotionally distant. Why in the world would she need a man, anyway, if her own father didn't want to have anything to do with her?

She is the middle child. Nominally, middle children get "lost" in the family and later "turn to rebel against the status quo". What better way to rebel than to be a lesbian?

Rosie also uses her forte as a middle child mediator/soother to let everyone know it's not only OK to be lesbian, but it's OK for lesbians to raise children.

Just don't let her convince you that she was born that way.

What's my point? Well, if Rosie was not born that way, then she and other gays and lesbians do have a choice on whether they continue on in the homosexual lifestyle or not. Since homosexuality is a result of reactions within a person to a difficult or abusive childhood, then, with counseling and/or therapy, a homosexual can identify and work through and heal those incidents in which they were hurt, abused, or ignored. Healing and forgiveness comes by working through the pain, not sweeping it under the rug. Homosexuals can choose a different path. They've just been told that they cannot change because they were born that way. Posh.

Let's pray for Rosie - for healing of those old wounds from her childhood!

Dotson Memorial Baptist Church, Maryville TN

So, why would I call myself "Narrow-Minded Simpleton," a moniker that is usually launched with derision towards far-right Christian "lunatics" who quote the Bible all the time and think there's only one (simple) Way to Heaven?

If the shoe fits...
