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.”
September 20, 2017, 04:32:32 am Christian40 says: "The most popular Hepatitis B vaccine is nothing short of a witch’s brew including aluminum, formaldehyde, yeast, amino acids, and soy. 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."

September 11, 2017, 06:59:33 am Psalm 51:17 says: The law of reaping and sowing. It's amazing how God's mercy and longsuffering has hovered over America so long. (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;

December turning into a violent month

'Tis the season for crime and violence. Two more shootings this weekend left two people, including a 15-year-old boy, dead. But unfortunately, the violence doesn't surprise some. It's another deadly trend going in the wrong direction.

This weekend's violence started Friday night with the shooting of Michael Boyd, who was 23. It happened following a disturbance at a Shell gas station on the city's northeast side. After getting shot, police say Boyd ran and collapsed in a nearby yard where he died.

"We never got no problems here in this complex," said Carl Straughan

Straughan lives at the scene of another deadly shooting this weekend. This one happened at the Rosewood Commons Apartments on the city's northwest side. 15-year-old Anthony Warren was shot and killed under a tree Saturday shortly after noon.

Rev. Charles Harrison, leader of the Ten Point Coalition, says December is typically a violent month because even criminals are trying to collect money to provide Christmas for their families. He says now more than ever, peace is a necessity. It's a message he's not only preaching on the streets, but at his church.

"We celebrate the Prince of Peace this month as we lead to Christmas and we're talking how can we make this a peaceful city," said Rev. Harrison.

After an especially violent summer in the city, Rev. Harrison says he's not surprised it's continuing into an icy, cold December.

"Money, drugs and then street conflict. Those are the three biggest things that are driving the increase in violence," said Rev. Harrison.

Then comes retaliation, an element, Rev. Harrison says played a role in Friday night's shooting.

The murder of the 15-year-old continues one trend of more young people carrying guns. But, it builds on a newer trend regarding the location of the crime.

"Pike has been one of those areas we haven't had a lot of trouble in. But, because of the apartment complexes in the Pike area, we're now seeing an uptick in the Pike area," said Rev. Harrison.

In the end, Rev. Harrison says it's a problem that affects all of us.

"We have family members and relatives and neighbors that we know are involved in things that can lead to violence. We have to be more vocal and more engaged," said Rev. Harrison.
