Friday September 8th – Open Thread

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. THY WILL BE DONE, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but DELIVER US FROM EVIL.

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen โ€

    Gingrich was doing fine until he gives Ryan and McConnell a pass…why can’t politicians get that those two DO NOT want President Trump to succeed….

    Gingrich: Trump struck a ‘very smart’ deal with Democrats

      What has McConnell done to punish McCain, Collins and Murkowski? Have they lost their committees? Have they been told the RNC will not support them for reelection next time they run? What has McConnell accomplished? I don’t like Chuck Schumer or Harry Reid but they were effective. Democrats NEVER go against their leadership. Why? Because they know if they do there’ll be hell to pay. Frankly, I think the three amigos had “permission” to vote against ObamaCare Repeal because two (McCain and Murkowski) had just been reelected (on repealing ObamaCare) last Nov and won’t have to face voters for another six years and Collins is a Democrat from Democrat Maine anyway. Had either McCain or Murkowski been up for reelection, some other “safe” Republicans would have been given permission to scuttle the repeal. The UniParty wants ObamaCare because the more expenses big corps. can put on the backs of the middle class taxpayer the more profit for the big donors. That said, we’re stuck with them until Trump is out of office. THEN, as they say, PAYBACKS ARE HELL.

        oh, I think if people will get busy in their states, we can replace a number of the felons in DC in 2018! After Christmas, watch……ALL of the RINO’s will suddenly be about the Voters!!! Do not get lulled into their trap. They do this consistently. And if you can’t get the incumbent out (with few exceptions, will post list 1st of year, accumulating now) in the Primary in your state; then vote for the demonrat!!!

        Or 65 million armed Voters can go take back DC that way too. But, would like to see at least one midterm before we have to do that.

      Baker in Gay Wedding Case: The Government’s Actions are ‘Frightening’

      WASHINGTON — Eighty-six members of Congress have filed an amicus brief in support of Jack Phillips, owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop, in his upcoming Supreme Court case Masterpiece Cakeshop vs. Colorado Civil Rights Commission.

      “A government that tells you what you can’t say is bad enough,” warned Rep. Vicky Hartzler, R-Mo. “But a government that tells you what you must say and what you must do, and punishes you if you don’t is frightening.”

      “That kind of state power should scare all of us no matter where we stand on this issue,” she said.

        Franklin Graham Defends Colorado Baker

        The Colorado baker who refused to bake a cake for a gay wedding is paying a steep price for his action. Jack Phillips has received death threats centering around a case that the Supreme Court decided this week that it will hear.

        Phillips told Fox News this week that he has received two death threats, been told he doesn’t “deserve to live” and that “Christians should be thrown into the Roman Colosseum with lions.”

        Phillips says he regularly receives vulgar phone calls and emails. “The worst part is that I have to answer the phone so they’re not threatening my wife or my daughter when they pick it up,” Phillips told Fox News, “they don’t wait to see who’s on the phone. You pick up the phone, they’re already talking.”

        In the meantime, evangelist Franklin Graham is standing up for the baker. Graham noted Phillips’ harassment and lost business revenue on Facebook this week. “It can be costly to stand up for God’s truth,” Graham said citing 2 Timothy 3:12 which says “all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.”

        Kristen Waggoner, an attorney with Alliance Defending Freedom, is representing Phillips and says his case represents a growing marginalization of Christians in the U.S., calling it “polite persecution.” She told Fox News “it’s forcing someone to choose between their faith and making a living and supporting their family in their vocation.”

        The high court will hear oral arguments in the case this fall.

    lilbirdee12โ€™s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    And, Lord, we pray for help for the people of Texas and Louisiana who are caught in the flooding. And, now we add everyone in the path of Irma to our prayer for safety.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen
