All the news I wish to print

There are all kinds of stories out there. Some will make you laugh, some will make you cry. Some will make you shrug, some will make you scream. Read any daily paper or listen to any newscast and your emotions can go from happy to sad to disbelief to fear to incredulity to horror to anger in very short order.
As we go along, there will be stories, as Paul Harvey used to say, to "wash your ears out with." There will be others that will make you feel like you need to be deloused simply by virtue of have in heard or read them. Some posts will be religious, some secular and for some I expect will defy easy classification in either category. I hope you will join me in this journey and pleas feel free to comment along the way.
For my part I pledge not to remove any posts unless they are vulgar, libelous, threatening or otherwise in violation of the standards of civil discussion. I will not remove any post simply because I disagree with it but I will reserve the right to respond to any challenges that come my way.
God bless you and welome to my blog.

Got Bible?

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 the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

These rights are so fundamental to the functioning of a free society the founders listed them in the first article of what has come to be known as the Bill of Rights. While it is true that localities have the right to establish reasonable restrictions to protect the rights of all its citizens, using that right as an excuse to repress small religious or political gatherings in a private home is something not to be taken lightly. Since the objects of this action refuse to disparage the one individual that is making waves about these meetings, I will not do so either. But it is telling that other neighbors, who presumably also need street access to drive and to park, are not only not complaining but are rather supporting the Froms in this struggle. The video and link to the story are below.
