"Yes I was. My grandchildren are ardent atheists, thanks to their father, and it hurts me that nothing, no matter how lovingly portrayed, gets through to them. I do not know if that fits persecution, but it troubles me a great deal."
"Thank you - also business people that cannot in good conscience bake wedding cakes for those that in God's eyes are not to be married or photographers force to go to gay weddings to photograph all the goings on. Our children many times are told…"
"Although our lives are not at stake - yet, we are being persecuted. Jesus said "blessed are you when you are persecuted for my sake". But the sadness is still there when you realize Christians, until now, were never persecuted in this…"
"Nancy I am not a fool - I KNOW we do not stone people - and we shouldn't now - but that was how serious people took that behavior back then - making a point. It spreads disease, lowers the immune system - never mind the moral aspect of it."
Actually, I think most people, maybe silently, would agree with your analysis. However, this dialogue of a third party, if loud enough, may scare the GOP into paying more attention to our vision and demands for reform within the GOP. Most people do not feel an urgency, nor compelled to change unless their stronghold is threatened. Just like the GOP RINO and old guard style leaderships pander to keep what they hold dear, then get them to pander to us conservatives so they think that making those concessions is the only way they can be re-elected. At this point, rallies have not been enough.
Gail, you are 100% right about the Mormons. I highly recommend the video called "Mormonism" by Charlie H. Campbell of the "Always Be Ready" Christian ministry. Not only is Mormonism not Christian, it is 100% opposed to Christianity, and dedicated to the destruction of the United States federal government. At the time of the well-deserved lynching of con-men child molesters Joseph and Hiram Smith (the founders of Mormonism), the leadership of the Mormon church swore a blood oath to work diligently to destroy the US government from within. They have done this blood oath every year since then until 1927, when they supposedly stopped the practice, but since everything they do is so secretive, how would anyone really know if they have stopped?
Gail, I too would love to see Col Allen West become our next President, but realistically that's not going to happen. He probably senses it's just too early in his political career to run for the highest office in the land.
May the Lord turn this nation back to righteousness, without which all our political efforts will be in vain.
