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."

Historic Nativity Scene to Open in Florida Capitol Building

Florida's Capitol building in Tallahassee will become home to a Christmas Nativity scene beginning on Tuesday. The privately funded display of religion in Florida's public square has been hosted by the Florida Nativity Scene Committee and facilitated by the Thomas More Society, a Chicago-based nonprofit public interest law firm.

"This is historic," says Pam Olsen, Florida Nativity Scene Committee chairperson. "It is the first time to have the Nativity scene at the heart of our state government."

The Christmas creche display will stand in the center of the Capitol rotunda and will depict the newborn Christ child lying in a manger. The official unveiling of the Nativity tableau will feature a celebration marking Christmas.

The opening celebration will be held from noon to 1 p.m. EST, with Christmas carols, the sharing of the Christmas story from Luke 2, and prayer for our troops and "for this generation and the following generations to have religious freedom in this nation," Olsen explains.

The Nativity exhibit will remain throughout the Christmas season, ending on Dec. 27. Then the holy family figures of Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus will be joined by figures representing the biblical Wise Men on the rotunda's opposite side.

The secondary display—sponsored by Reclaim Christmas for Christ, founded by Sandra Lee Snowden—will remain at the Capitol, along with the original nativity, through Jan. 6. The dual exhibits will conclude with a public Jan. 6 commemoration of the Epiphany at noon.

The Epiphany, widely practiced in Hispanic and Latino cultures as Three Kings Day, marks the visit by the "wise men from the East" to bring the Christ child gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.

The goals of the Florida Nativity Scene Committee and Reclaim Christmas for Christ are to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and to proclaim and demonstrate to the public and the media that such private expressions of religious belief in the public squares of the nation are not merely tolerated but fully deserving of robust legal protection.

The Tallahassee Nativity initiative was inspired by last year's dispute over a Christian holiday display in the Chicago suburb of Arlington Heights. Eventually resolved with intervention by the Thomas More Society, the conflict has prompted America Nativity Scene, founded by Jim Finnegan, to help place privately funded manger scenes in public squares nationwide.

Quote
Thomas More (7 February 1478 – 6 July 1535), known to Roman Catholics as Saint Thomas More,[1][2] was an English lawyer, social philosopher, author, statesman and noted Renaissance humanist. He was an important councillor to Henry VIII and Lord Chancellor from October 1529 to 16 May 1532.[3] More opposed the Protestant Reformation, in particular the theology of Martin Luther and William Tyndale whose books he burned and whose followers he persecuted.
 
Pope Pius XI canonised More in 1935 as a martyr of the schism that separated the Church of England from Rome; Pope John Paul II in 2000 declared More the "heavenly Patron of Statesmen and Politicians".[4] Since 1980, the Church of England has remembered More liturgically as a Reformation martyr.[5]

So this "Christian celebration" (supposedly)does just that? "religious freedom"? Meaning not just Christians, but Muslims, Mormons, Catholics, JWs, atheists, etc can exercise their "religious freedom" and be in heaven? So THIS is what it's all about? Roll Eyes

We celebrate Jesus' RESURRECTION, NOT his birth!

This sounds like something out of a cheesy movie script! Private money influencing public officials, Catholics promoting false Christianity, all managed by a Catholic-based law firm from Obama's home town, in a Republican led state!

I'm waiting for the atheists to lose their minds.
