🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮

The pastor of a church I used to go to has retired, but he keeps in touch via social media and his wife texts me periodically. They're sweet people, but she texted me THIS today and it made me feel 🤢 and 🤯

Thank you President Trump.

..
This interesting prayer was given in Kansas, USA, at the opening session of their Senate. It
seems prayer still upsets some people.
When Minister Joe Wright was asked to open the new session of the Kansas Senate, everyone was expecting the usual generalities,
but this is what they heard:

"Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word says: "Woe to those who call evil good", but that is exactly what we have done.

  • We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values.
  • We have ridiculed the absolute truth of Your Word and called it Pluralism.
  • We have worshipped other gods and called it multiculturalism.
  • We have endorsed perversion and called it alternative lifestyle.
  • We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery.
  • We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare.
  • We have killed our unborn and called it choice.
  • We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable.
  • We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self-esteem.
  • We have abused power and called it politics.
  • We have embezzled public funds and called it essential expenses.
  • We have insitutionalised bribery and called it sweets of office.
  • We have coveted our neighbor's possessions and called it ambition.
  • We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression.
  • We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment.

Search us, Oh GOD, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from every sin and set us free. Amen!"

The response was immediate. A number of legislators walked out during the prayer in protest.
In 6 short weeks, Central Christian Church, where Rev. Wright is pastor, logged more than 5,000 phone calls with only 47 of those calls
responding negatively.
The church is now receiving international requests for copies of
this prayer from India, Africa and Korea.
With the LORD'S help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and WHOLEHEARTEDLY become our desire so that we again can be
called "ONE NATION UNDER GOD."

Think about this: If you forward this prayer to everyone on your list, in less than 30 days it would be heard by the world. How many people
on your list will not receive this prayer.
Do you have the boldness to pass it on?

I HAVE, AND I HAVE JUST SHOWN IT BY FORWARDING THIS TO YOU. GO ON FORWARD IT!!!

Uh, and what exactly are we supposed to post in this group?

@altschmerz not shit like this, look at others as example

@Mofo1953 sorry/not sorry, I had to vent, THAT'S what this group is for.

@altschmerz you could have softened the blow by putting your personal comments and then a link or something of the sort

@Mofo1953 my comments were 🤮🤢 and 🤯 which reflect quite perfectly what I feel.

@altschmerz yes, but no link

Nobody ever took a Civics Class, did they.....

That's not half as daft as I thought it might be. One problem with common prayer is that one person speaks subjectively and everyone is asked to give their amen.

Seems pretty daft to me!

After some research I found this

"This event actually happened in the Kansas House (not Senate) in Topeka on January 23, 1996. Joe Wright is the pastor of Central Christian Church in Wichita and was guest chaplain that day. He prayed a prayer of repentance that was written by Bob Russell, pastor of Southeast Christian Church in Louisville, Kentucky. According to an article in the Kansas City Star from January 24, 1996, his prayer did stir controversy and one member of the legislative body walked out. Others criticized the prayer. The controversy didn’t end there. Later that year in the Colorado House, Republican representative Mark Paschall angered lawmakers by using Joe Wright’s prayer as the invocation. Some members there also walked out in protest."

Time however makes little difference as now when people need to keep a clear and reasonable state of mind, it rears it's fetid little head again to provoke superstition and "holy righteous anger"

Born of fear in a time of emergency It is a call to puritanism, a call to hate, an incitement to violence and a rallying cry to those who would march backward in to the era of heretic burning, persecution and witch hunting.

The putrescence, the cancer of religion has gone far enough, extending its tendrils in to the society of decent loving people, corrupted to their core by the self appointed "Holy" men who seek only the power that their pompous garb gives them.

Enough, arrest this man, do not fall for the horror that is falsely called "religious freedom" but is in a fact a privilege to practice prejudice extended to religion alone.

Posted by KynleiThis is so sad. I'd say that religion sucks, but you all know that already.

Posted by KynleiMy aunt shared this on facebook. This is a stupid and dangerous way of thinking about it. I hate it and the people who believe it.
