I just wish all the pseudo-Christian hypocrites who insist of wrapping themselves in Jesus' shroud could have been crucified with him. Why don't you thumpers open your Queen James to Chapter 6 of the Gospel of Matthew and read then heed.

Christ in chapter 6 was speaking about a person, not a group.....This article is about a group which is what the minsters speak too......don't worry though, bigots don't have to worry about meeting Christ.

Your fingers permit you to count to ten; the same complement of digits permits me to count to 1023.

The decision has sparked controversy in the city – located about 50 miles north of Portland, Ore.

Mark Schmutz, who pastors the Northlake Baptist Church, said if they can’t speak the name Jesus Christ, association ministers will no longer provide the invocation.
