Then St. Peter drew his sword

For all of us who remember that all the Apostles ran away and St. Peter later denied he knew the Lord, most have forgotten how he was willing to die and fight for the Lord at the time they came to arrest him. MORE

Love Thy Neighbor, Except?…

It has taken me a few hours to diminish the anger that surfaced when I first saw these two pictures below.

Asian discrimination is a U.S. Tradition, lacking of U. S. History here

If you remember that even during the Gold Rush days in California many Asians lost their property rights. It was the building of the railroad tracks that kept it from getting worse.

Americans need to refresh themselves on U.S. History and stop making all these stupid and false accusations in the name of discrimination. It was from the beginning with many different Races and Religions.

The reading on Good Friday, and Holy Saturday Gen: 1, is the Scriptural source with the Passover tradition.

There isn’t anything in the scriptures that can tell us when God made Eve, or how long they lived in the garden of paradise before they were expelled.
