With respect for, and in regard to, my rights under the first and second amendments, here is just a note to those who think that we are a weak society and that terrorism will succeed in converting us to Islam!

     I pose this rhetorical question, why is it that the “heavenly” reward for the Islamist involves mainly the pleasures of the flesh? Just asking..

In spite of all the calamity and bloodshed, please try to have a blessed Sunday.


God's gifts are not always recognized by the mortal.

May God forgive them for I cannot.


I believe in Jesus

if you do not, then that is your choice

and as such I will not condemn you

nor will I demand you silence your voice.

You see, we live in a land of great freedom

where we are free to worship at will

where Christians and Jews and most others

have no wish to maim or to kill.

For our beliefs are those of the peaceful

and we are taught the true meaning of love.

But, never believe for one moment

that the hawk won’t serve for the dove!
