September 24, 2017, 10:45:16 pm Psalm 51:17 says: The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the league rulebook. It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

Aluminum is a known neurotoxin that destroys cellular metabolism and function. Hundreds of studies link to the ravaging effects of aluminum. The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

(ie, the infrastructure is very bad here b/c for many years, they were grossly underspent on. 1st Tim 6:10, the god of materialism has its roots firmly in the West) And remember once upon a time ago when shacking up b/w straight couples drew shock awe?

Exodus 20:5  Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

Town Renames 'Good Friday' for the Sake of 'Cultural Sensitivity'

Whenever you hear a liberal talking about cultural diversity and sensitivity, it normally means something insensitive is about to happen to Christians.

The latest case in point: Bloomington, Indiana—the home of Indiana University and a nesting place for a gaggle of intolerant liberals.

Mayor John Hamilton recently announced the city is renaming two paid holidays for city workers in an effort to respect "differing cultures."

Columbus Day will henceforth be known as "Fall Holiday" and Good Friday will be known as "Spring Holiday."

Mayor John Hamilton told Fox 59 the name change will "better reflect cultural sensitivity in the workplace."

According to our Fox television affiliate, some folks around town got upset when City Hall posted a closing sign referencing specific holidays.

"As a mayor, we are in charge of government. We do not set religious policies, we are not supposed to be part of religion and we are just trying to make sure that our government is open to all people and inclusive," the mayor told the television station.

And apparently the only way to achieve cultural diversity and sensitivity is by disrespecting Italians and Christians.

"It was not necessary and just stands to divide rather than unite when it comes to Good Friday," the Herald Times wrote in a staff editorial.

The newspaper said a case could be made for changing Columbus Day.

"To some in our country the idea of celebrating him is akin to celebrating a marauding invader who sought to destroy a culture," they wrote.

But Good Friday?

"It's a day important to the faith of many in this country," they wrote. "The idea of acting as if city leaders don't acknowledge its existence and would rather stick a 'Spring Holiday' name on it is insensitive to those for whom it means a lot. It's an unnecessary poke in the eye to many Christians."

Well-said, editors!

Mayor Hamilton may not be aware, but Christians commemorate the crucifixion of Jesus Christ on Good Friday. It's about remembering that God so loved the world that He gave His only Son.

Good Friday is a holy day, not a day to frolic around a maypole in a field of pansies.

And to be honest, I've grown weary of boorish bureaucrats trying to whitewash our faith from the public marketplace all in the name of tolerance and diversity.

They never touch the Muslim holidays, do they? When was the last time you saw a liberal lawmaker launch a crusade to rename Ramadan?

You'd have a better chance of spotting Peter Cottontail hopping down the bunny trail.
