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."

TX rep. introduces 'Merry Christmas Bill'

Though it didn't affect this year's events, a Texas state legislator is introducing a measure he hopes will protect teachers and school administrators who want to refer to Christmas as Christmas.

Texas state Rep. Dwayne Bohac (R) says he has discovered that the teachers and administrators at his son's school are afraid of mentioning Christmas or Hanukkah during the holidays.

"The district chooses to call the break a 'holiday break' or a 'holiday party,' then the teachers kind of follow the lead, and they do the same thing when, in fact, they should have the freedom and liberty to express these religious winter celebrations form Hanukkah, to Christmas, to you name it," Bohac contends.

So, he is introducing what he calls the "Merry Christmas Bill" to ensure that teachers and school administrators can freely express Christmas and other holiday wishes without fear.

"Teachers have enough on their plates in Texas without having to worry about litigation for celebrating traditional holidays with their kids," the lawmaker accounts. "And so that's what all of this is about. We want them to be able to use Christmas greetings or religious displays like the Christmas tree, the menorah, and nativity scenes, which is all consistent with Supreme Court rulings."

He points out that two Supreme Court cases have made it clear that it is permissible for governmental entities to acknowledge Christmas for historical and cultural purposes.

I'm just wondering when they will start saying you can't say "Happy Easter".  Roll Eyes

What would we call it "Happy Bunny Day"?

What we need is NO holiday at all. It's not time to rejoice, but time to mourn.

"Woe unto you that are full! for ye shall hunger. Woe unto you that laugh now! for ye shall mourn and weep." Luke 6:25 (KJB)
