When will these poeple realize that the State Gaming Commision doesn't care what some local people/clergy think. They will put the casinos where the want once they determine if the area will make them money. That is the true factor in deciding who gets a gaming license. If it will make more money than the next place.

What a humongous bunch of bull$hit! Just stick with the saving of souls, and there are plenty of souls that need saved up there and nationwide. What about the role of the Indiantown Gap National Cemetery per Penn National? Realize there was no battle per se at the "Gap", but those who are buried there sacrificed much for our nation. Doesn't the casino close by cheapen the meaning of that place? Of course it IS about money; what isn't these days? The casino could be stashed in some far off corner of the township. What about the gaudy, money makin' tourist trap shops every other building in G'burg? Give me a break. Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition!

If they oppose the casino then they should oppose any other etablishment near the battle field that has nothing to do with history!

Thanks to these Adams County Pastors for having the courage to stand up and be counted. 66 pastors is a lot in our small county. One of the signers told me, "I just didn't want to hear one more person telling me they'd ruined their family by gambling."

I was misquoted in this story. Pennsylvania's gaming industry has employed 12,000 people statewide, not 1,200.

It doesn'treally matter where the casino is or isn't. The people interested in gambling will travel to the casino no matter where it is. If that outlaw all legal gambling do you really think that will stop people from going to the local bookie?

People will gamble no matter what happens. If you have the opportunity to have the casino come to your town, which will benefit more than hurt, why not welcome it. It's going to created business for more that just the casino itself.
