  4. Modern preacher vs. ancient one.

    Modern "christian" leaders tell their fleeced flocks that God is causing these EQ's, whereas the ancient one, Jesus, proclaims that the increase in wars, diseases, men marrying men and women being given in marriage, earthquakes, etc. etc. etc. were just bound to happen when the earth became ruined with pollution and the idea of men marrying becoming totally acceptable, even honored amon religious folks. He didn't cause these things to occur, silly. He just knew that they would, and so warned us 2,000 yrs. in advance.

    Yeah, I'm kind of concerned, because it doesn't seem right not being on these blogs with us. If you hear from her, tell I said hey, hope she's feeling alright.

    I've heard beck.
    She's been busy the last few days, and she had her meds changed, so she's able to sleep now.
    She's ok.
