I am not A Jesus Christ freak, but Jesus is my savior, and I will defend Jesus.

For one, if the Supreme Court is prejudiced against the Ten Commandments being placed any where in a court house, or out in whatever form.
Why don't the Suprme Court simply abolish taking oath on with the bible. Why don't we just say, let's drink to the truth what say you? Judge to the accussed. "Liberty University v. Supreme Court.

Fayetteville and Cumberland County will meet their match, when and when the spirit has had enough.
Quoting God's words in the so called Bible Belt is
simply, tighten your belt.
You came from a spiritual form Genesis 1:27.
You became what you are Genesis 2:7.
"You were not created to be. Rather you were created to become. What? Is your choice."

Shame on us all. Call ourselves Christians? Well let me explain the simple rules in Christianity.
"Lead, follow, or get out of the way." P.J. Lawrence.
There are three in Christianity; 1. A hypocrite Christian 2. A Christian who says he is one.
3 A tue believer in the faith in Christianity.
So who are we?
Tightenen your belt.

Hypocricy is apparent.
We are dealing with hypocrisy by a minor group who is hell bent on destruction. That is their choice, but do not let them seperate the whole from the norm!

These people are dazed by their daily crave for material things that their intoxicated mind have wondered and had gone astray.
The mind may wonder, but the heart is where the home is, Physically.
The home is the heart where the spirit lives.

Fayetteville City Council and The Cumberland Board of Commissioners are hoping this news does not get wide spread!

The constitution bans state-sponsored religion. Government events should not favor one religion over another. Prayers "in Jesus' name" are blatantly Christian, and thus create a de facto state religion.

Actually you are wrong and please do not take my word for it, actually look it up in the constitution, the Nation is not to have a national religion, it doesnt mention states, and in fact many states had a state religion long after the constitution was written and signed. Besides it is not mandatory to pray with the people who are praying. Just ignore it if you are an athiest. But if you are so concerned with freedom of individual beliefs why should we have to submit to your beliefs in athieism
