They Say

"And you, He made alive, when you were
dead, slain, by your trespasses and sin.

In which at one time you walked, habitually.
You were following the course and fashion
of this world, were under the sway of
the tendency of this present age,
following the prince of the power of the air.
You were obedient to and under
the control of the demon spirit
that still constantly works in
the sons of disobedience,

the careless, 


the rebellious,

Recent violent protests and vandalism in
Berkeley California

and the unbelieving, who go against 
the purposes of God."
Ephesians 2:2

Protesters at the recent Women's March on Washington DC.
"Abortion On Demand Without Apology"
advocates the cold-blooded, premeditated murder
 of the very likeness and image of God Himself.

"For the god of this world has blinded the
unbelievers' minds that they should not discern the truth,
preventing them from seeing the illuminating light of the
Gospel of the glory of Christ, the Messiah,
Who is the Image and Likeness of God."
11 Corinthians 4:4

What about the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit
of happiness for the unborn?

"They Say"

Have you ever heard of the terrible family They,
And the dreadful venomous things They say?
Why, half the gossip under the sun,
If you trace it back, you will find begun
In that wretched House of They

A numerous family, so I am told,
And its genealogical tree is old;
For ever since Adam and Eve began
To build up the curious race of man,
Has existed the House of They.

Gossip-mongers and spreader of lies,
Horrid people whom all despise!
And yet the best of us now and then,
Repeat queer tales about women and men
And quote the House of They.

They live like lords, and never labor;
A They's one task is to watch his neighbor,
And tell his business and private affairs
To the world at large; they are sowers of tares-
These folks in the House of They.

It is wholly useless to follow a They
With a whip or a gun, for he slips away
And into his house, where you cannot go;
It is locked and bolted and guarded so-
This horrible House of They.

Though you cannot get in, yet they get out,
And spread their villainous tales about;
Of all the rascals under the sun
Who have come to punishment, never one
Belonged to the House of They. 
-Ella Wheeler Wilcox

The late Communist dictator Fidel Castro of Cuba,
 who, for many years, ruled his nation
and people with an iron fist,
 was recently feted by certain members of
 the American mainstream media for bringing education,
 social services, and medical care to his people.
That's because none of these fawning media talking heads 
 have ever spent any length of time languishing
 in one of El Comandante's  forced labor camps
or hellhole prisons.

The First Amendment
"Congress shall make no law respecting an 
establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free
exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech,
or of the press, or of the right of the people
peaceably to assemble, and to 
petition the Government for a
redress of grievances."

"With freedom comes responsibility
a responsibility that can be only met
by the individual."
-President Ronald Reagan
