The sin most commit but seldom confessed is FOOLISHNESS

9downloadFoolishness is the result of a person misusing the intelligence God has given him. A fool uses his reasoning skills to make wrong decisions.

Ky. family judge: Gay marriage, like ‘jumbo shrimp,’ illogical

timphilpotLOUISVILLE — A Family Court judge who routinely presides over gay adoptions said that gay marriage is an “oxymoron” like “jumbo shrimp” or a “magnificent Chihuahua.”

Why We Are Losing Americans To Prescription Medications?

18downloadMore Americans are consistently taking prescription drugs than ever before. The debate goes on about why. Some cite increases in health concerns, others indicate medical professionals are responsible, and some point to “big pharma” pushing pills.

I’m Pretty Sure Jesus Wouldn’t Stand For A National Anthem, Either

images-7Can’t believe the ignorance of these people. Here is what Jesus would say. “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesars and to God the things that are Gods.”

Conservatives are up in arms over San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s refusal to stand during the playing of the national anthem before a game against Green Bay a few days ago.  Kaepernick explained himself in a statement post-game:  “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.
