Concerning Kim Davis

Here is my understanding of what took place with Kim Davis and we share beliefs. She is Apostolic and I am Oneness Pentecostal- same-same.

She swore to perform her office, but when the law changed, she appealed to be allowed to let others in her office sign the paperwork, citing her beliefs. She was denied. The outcome was inevitable if she stuck to her guns - which she did.

The final outcome is what she originally asked for and that is what is so stupid about all of this.
I truly believe the people in power and in our court system are doing everything possible to bend over backwards to meet the demands of all the other religions, but doing the opposite if a fundamentalist Christian throws up a red flag.

Evidence is all over the place the way they force Islam down the throat of this country, trangenderism, or atheism while pushing anything resembling Christian teaching as unconstitutional, bigoted, racist, or ignorant.

The First aMendment right concerning religion is so obvious, I can't for the life of me understand how it can be interpreted ambiguously by our courts and politicians.

Julee Denton: Being a martyr is very different than having the courage of your convictions. Martyrdom is easy...you seek attention; "poor me". The courage of your conviction requires you to stand for what you believe, regardless of the consequences.

Sandi White: This Nation made a Covenant with God, each individual has their own Covenant. She stood her ground, went to jail for her beliefs, Think that puts her in Conscientious Objector status, like the Quakers.

Jeannie Wood: What bothers me the most is that the U.S. Supreme Court decided that what the individual states had voted on regarding same-sex marriages didn't matter, and forced all the states to accept what they decided.

Mark Ritter: Anyone in favor of denying another human being their right to pursue happiness for any reason... Any reason... Is on the wrong side of history.

It wasn't all that long ago in the scheme of things that I would not have been allowed to marry my wife because she is Asian.

This situation is no different.

If you stand with Kim Davis you stand on the same side as other shameful scenes in history.

Look in the mirror. You are one of those people on the wrong side of history. Own it and live with it.

Roy Rogers I agree with you Bert. Our laws are becoming lawless in there creation. Appears that a portion of our great country is intent on making a mockery of or making it illegal to follow beliefs that are Christian as documented in the Holy Bible.

Praying that folks will turn their hearts and minds from the chaos to loving God and Loving people. I do not intend nor do want to force my beliefs on others. Surely do not want to offend if I choose not to be a part of something that goes against what I believe.

Coritius Keith Broussard: All these things taking place have been written, that's something that we always have to remember and that our savior was persecuted and then killed for all... I'm the midst of chaos, immoralness and foolishness and idiocy... We know what the end of this story will be!

Camp fires, wood smoke, and burning leaves.

When I was a kid, everyone burned leaves in the fall. I always enjoyed it so much.It was a happy time. Man, that smell was amazing and you couldn’t go anywhere without smelling it. Of course now I know that it is a major source of air pollution and those of us that live inside the city limits are restricted from doing it. I don’t think I would burn them anyway, choosing to compost instead.
The whole family would engage in raking the yard and the reward was burning the leaves. The thick gray smoke would pour out like liquid clouds and we would run through it. Afterward, we smelled like smoke, but we didn’t care. I would wager that most people under the age of 30 have never even raked leaves into a pile, let alone burn them.
Growing up in north Georgia in the late 60’s, my 3 brothers and I would camp out most of the summer and burn anything and everything on our campfire. At the end of summer there wouldn’t be a stick, pine cone, or needle on the ground. We smelled like mountain men a…

Riding the waves

Back in 1974, after coming back to the USA from the unpleasant conflict in Southeast Asia, I was stationed at Vandenberg Air Force Base in Lompoc, California. Vandenberg has 20 miles of coastline that is basically closed to the public and people in residence, regardless if you are in the military or not. This rule didn’t seem to affect my fellow airmen and I from going body surfing on a lonely stretch of beach, far from controlling authorities. There was a submerged shelf that ran out a couple three hundred yards from the beach that was flat and about 6 feet deep.You could swim way out there and as the ocean waves came in, they would hit that shelf and make 5 feet high waves that white-capped all the way in. Now mind you, this was pre-Jaws and none of us had ever heard of a Great White shark. Year later I read where this stretch of beach was prime habitat and a couple years ago, an airman was killed right there.
We had been in the 65 degree water for about an hour and I was turning …

Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic

I wish I could remember who it was that said you can get a basic education in three years, but let us take a look at Ben Franklin as an example of that. We have a family joke that the answer to almost any Jeopardy clue is almost always “Who was Ben Franklin?”
When I am asked who I would most likely enjoy an afternoon with, it is always Ol’ Ben, the only President of the United States, who was never the President of the United States. Did you know he was the master of self-promotion and a man I admire? Even as a young lad, if he spotted a person of higher station, he would grab a shovel or some tool and begin to work diligently. The person would see him and remark, “What a fine worker that young man is!”
I’ve read a couple of books on the man and it still amazes me that he did so much with so little organized education. “From 1714-1716, Franklin attended Boston Grammar School and George Brownell's English School (for one year each) but he was withdrawn due to the expense of formal…
