I'm In Suspicion of Being Superstitious - An American Rant
(Or What Life Might Like if Robert Frost had Done Heroin with William S. Burroughs)
"THIS INFORMATION COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE AND FREEDOM, THIS COMING IS AN 'OFFICIAL ANNONCEMENT OF THE ONE THING THAT I CAN PROMISE YOU IS NOT A THREAT TO YOU, YOUR FAMILY OR ANYTHING ELSE...BEFORE YOUR GO ON READING I ASK ONLY THAT YOU BE AWARE AND AWAKE!!! FOR YOU MUST READ THIS QUICKLY AND THEN IT WILL BE YOUR CHOICE WHAT TO DO NEXT WITH THE INFORMATION..." The top lines of a letter that I had recieved at my work place yesterday, I now was taking time to read.

Having Faith, Trusting God, and Even Tithing every Sunday is not enough incentive to bring people to the Churches of the World. Nobody has time to Pray, Worship, or even Read their Bible - because they are busy night after night doing one thing...
"Then came the amazing number of persons, of every color men and women in unison who yelled ,"Downloading porn on the internet."
And one lady in the distance screams, "NO, he means praying and thanking out dear lord Jesus for all his wisdom and grace. Think people WWJD, WWJD...What would Jesus DO?"
