I think this man and his followers need something do to with their time. Why choose a parade that is basically for children to try to make their point? If he cares so much about children, maybe we should call him to explain this to the three year old who wakes up crying in the middle of the night with nightmares about his signs.

Because this is America and he has his Rights just like everybody else in America and the City of York can't take them away from him. I don't like what he has been doing but he has his rights and there is nothing we can do about it.

Sorry Lisa Mason and Jo Jo, what is scarier
than Rev. Grove's float? Come on, it is
hallowen is it not?
I did notice neither one of you mentioned the "A"
word, and that is what it is all about.
Abortion is EVIL and a woman does not have the
right to one!
With around 70 million dead babies in the U. S.
alone, all children have the right to know what
happened to their brother/sister don't you think.
And it is NOT a lump of tissue to be ripped out
at will.
With 70 million dead babies, I'd have to say a cat
makes a better mother than those women!

I suppose people see, John Brenner was a mistake for our
mayor, but he was RIGHT to deny paying for SCOTT HOSE'S
medical bills.

This is an issue we will argue on end about forever. Everybody has their own opinion on abortion. The thing that gets me the most is when a man is quick to judge about it. Walk a mile in a woman shoes then do so. That guy is nuts either way. I wonder since we all have rights, if we can get away with carrying signs right behind him in the parade saying how crazy this man is.

he spends so mch time teaching ati abortion that simply never gets around to teaching the real words of God that would simply teach people not to kill at will instead he uses graphic pictures

If God thought pictures was the way to pass God's word to eachother then the Bible would be all pictures but it is not

The Bible uses God's stories as the way to teach properly.

Then maybe the blind will hear and the death will understand by what they are told or read

Grove you aint notin but a gold digger like the rest of your kind

Shall I teach children why not to commit murder by showing them movies or pictures of graphic death?

Shall I teach children the destruction of pornagraphy by showing them children being taken advantage of?

The answer is no Grove

thats why the bible tells you that they do so so often to expose the most of them churches

5 out of 7 to be exact Rev ch2

God is only content with the church of smirna and the church of brotherly love out of all denominations and he even tells you why

and thats why most churches will never risk reading or teaching the bible word for word because more then anything else it exposes them that are beggers of money

Jim Grove is a crippled preacher who uses the bible as a crutch.

This whole thing is not about abortion, it is about a pathetic little man's big ego. He likes all the attention that it draws to him and his little misfit band of followers. I can't call there gathering a church, because nothing that they do embodies Christ's love into the world in anyway shape or form. Oops! I need to ask God for forgiveness for my judgmental ness. This guy has taken a great community event and ruined it. That is something to be really proud of.

How unfair to America it is, to have people use and twist are country's civil rights we fought for and paid for with blood. When I heard that people take towns and cities to court and fight them with the claim that their civil rights were violated. What a way to make a living.

Some making over $100,000 per year for about 2 or 3 or even 5 days work (being in jail). If you are interested, the job description is: To find ways to get unsuspecting police officers to violate these people's civil rights... Then sue the town/city, and then you to can win by either settling out of court or win by a jury agreeing that your civil right have been abused.

How do we Americans stop this from happening. How can we protect America's civil rights. Help stop these people from earning what turns out to be a salary.

Another thing that bothers me, is I feel that these people really don't care about what they are protesting against, it just the how much money can they blackmail us for. And how to push the right buttons either from the city employee or the local courts.

It's really sad. As an old TV character always proclaimed: "God will get you, for that!" Let hope that statement comes true for these vultures.

Isn't any different than those on welfare refusing to better themselves only to leech off the government for free handouts. Good for the Reverend.
